Explorations in Drawing: In this class, led by artist Joanne Stowell, students will explore different ways of seeing and making drawings, from drawing what they see in front to them to drawing from imagination. The class will provide an overview of the different styles of drawing, from realistic to abstract. The students will also experiment with subjects each week practicing drawing, from a simple still-life, drawing landscapes and portraits, and drawing “designs” fully from the imagination. Students will also learn and practice some basic drawing skills, such as adding value and depth by shading, and they will get a chance to experiment with different types of drawing materials.
