Drawing is a skill anyone can learn!
This drawing camp is jam-packed! On each of our Drawing Camp dates, students will be taught how to observe the subject and use light and shadows to see the basic shapes. Students will design compositions from props, sculpt to understand 3-D form, and use charcoal, pastel and graphite to understand how mediums affect an image. The camp is perfect for students who want to stretch their abilities with time-tested methods!
Learning to draw is an essential foundation to all artistic endeavors. Teaching students how to use their skills of observation to see the lines, values and shapes will build confidence in their other artistic pursuits.
