The fundamentals of representational art will be the focus of this course. We will explore subjects that include: perspective and how to create believable form and space; the structure, proportion and anatomy of the human figure and head; drapery and the clothed figure; the principles of light and value; color theory and its practical application; abstract composition and narrative storytelling. Sessions will include lectures and in-class exercises, and there will be weekly home assignments. Resources for further study will be provided for each subject. Students from all levels are welcome. NOTE: Please bring drawing materials to the first session. A complete supply list will be distributed at that time.
