Human beings have been drawing for tens of thousands of years, and we still find pleasure and peace in this simple, meditative exercise. The course will cover realistic and/or abstract observation of spaces, quality of line, light, shadow and color. Students may use the materials of their choice; suggested materials include charcoal, colored pencils, oil pastels, chalk, or watercolors, and of course paper – a 16×20″ tablet of 90# is fine. (Cheap is good). Devices such as iPads or Androids can be used for research. Instructor Ron Schira brings to class his decades of experience as an artist who draws, as well as the perspective he’s gained as a visual arts critic.
Drawing: Beyond Graphite will provide working artists and novices alike with an opportunity to focus and create in a supportive environment, while benefiting from Mr. Schira’s extensive experience in a wide variety of media and his acute understanding of what makes a drawing work.
Wednesdays 7/11/18, 7/25, 8/1, 8/8 5-7pm
