DRAWING FOR BEGINNERS
“Learning to See”
Learning to look carefully at the world around you is an important skill, no matter what your profession. Drawing is a good way to learn to pay attention to relationships, to perspective, to life! Anyone can learn to draw. Try something new and give it a try.
Observational Drawing - Part Two
We are programmed as human beings to recognize people and objects quickly, a holdover from when it could mean life or death to separate the predator from the background or friend from foe. Unfortunately, this “recognize and react” strategy is quite limiting when it comes to helping us reproduce a good likeness of objects or people in an artwork. The images we carry in our heads as aids to recognition often substitute for real observation. Learning to see what is really in front of you is important for many parts of our lives, and drawing is a great way to build this skill. This course will continue what we started in the fall class, but is appropriate for anyone who is interested in sharpening their observational skills and honing their facility with simple drawing materials. Students will be given some materials in the first class and a short list of suggested tools and paper will be handed out at that time.
