Fundamentals of Drawing

January 9, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until January 30, 2020

$62 – $72

The Fundamentals of Drawing will teach students about the basic techniques and materials of drawing. Class activities are based on the seven elements of art: line, shape, color, texture, value, space, and form. Classes will start with a demo, then students will practice the drawing activity for themselves. The intent of this class is to create a fun and easy-going space where students can sharpen their drawing skills. Please enter through the 5th Street door.

(Age 10+)

Dates: January 9, 16, 23, 30 from 5:00 – 6:30pm

Teaching Artist: Mary Edwards

Cost: $62 Member / $72 Non-Member

Teaching Artist Bio: I have been drawing since I could pick up a pencil. However, college was when I decided to make art a full-time practice. I have taken classes in drawing, painting, design, and sculpture (with a little experience on the pottery wheel). I am always excited to be in the studio and love making things. I hope to eventually become a full-time art teacher in the future and feel that this opportunity is a great way to gain some experience within the field. I feel that art is an important thing to teach because it inspires others to find out their own creativity and express themselves in ways that they may not be able to otherwise. My goal is to create a supportive and judgment-free zone, where my students feel open to exploring their own creativity and mark making.
