Drawing Fundamentals: Charcoal

Begin your formal creative practice in the traditional method of charcoal drawing. Charcoal pencils and sticks are one of most commonly used tools to draw with.  Learn the basics of this fine medium, understand the effectiveness of drawing techniques, and get a formal introduction into the process of creating imagery all on your own. Subjects discussed will include line quality, shading and gradation, cross hatching, and contour drawing. This class is open to all levels.
