In this class, students will be introduced to drawing and painting techniques through hands-on demonstrations. This will include learning how to “see well” through drawing warm-ups and exercises, still-life setups, and object studies. The class will develop a further understanding of basic elements and

principles of design, individual styles of expression, and a bit of art history. Weekly sketchbook practice outside of class is encouraged. No prior experience needed, but this class is for students motivated to learn about art and who can work independently.
