About this event
This charcoal drawing class is the ground work to understanding the use of tonal shifts in a drawing or painting. Because charcoal is easy to use it is fun and very sculptural lending itself to any artist who is ok getting their hands a little dirty . This class is essentially a three to four step method that gets you drawing in your first go. The ideas behind this traditional method will help you to create atmosphere and dimension in your work. Tried and true this practice is the forerunner to any painting class because it’s is known by the great masters that ,“ there are no color problems in painting just value problems in disguise”. Like going to the gym to enhance your performance weekly practice of drawing from real life is a practice some choose to adopt their whole career. We work from still life and the natural world to learn the rules. Then once you know them you can break them with skill.
