 A progressive drawing class focused on teenage artists of all levels and an excellent choice for high school AP Studio & Portfolio Preparation students who need to develop their work, focus skills and are looking to experiment w/their portfolios. Highly recommended for junior and senior high school students. Students work in a project-based format to create 3 & 4 dimensional drawings! The basic tenets/principals of drawing and rendering are incorporated within the process & each project moves students further along in their development. Initially we work mostly from photos - theirs or instructor provided. Beginner to intermediate students draft outlines w/grids to better learn and create proportional perspective. We will work large (18x24), initially in graphite/charcoal (vine & compressed) to build a good understanding of value, then we move onto color
