Students explore 7 elements of Art through drawing. Line, Shape, Texture, Color, Value, Form and Space. Relaxation methods will be introduced and experimenting with supplies will be encouraged. The goal of this class is to broaden student’s horizons and aid their eyes and hands to recognize elements of design, contour, and shape.

Each session begins with learning basic drawing vocabulary and exploration of supplies. In subsequent weeks, we will implement this vocabulary to complete projects tailored to each group. Instruction in elements of art will be incorporated in projects, as well as highlights of a minimum of one famous artist. This class is appropriate for beginner through intermediate artists.
