Drawing is a pleasurable skill that deepens your perceptions and expands your ability to express yourself. Using pencils, conté, charcoal, and ink, we will explore fundamental techniques such as proportion, shape, perspective, and value. We will also explore drawing as spiritual pursuit, and a mode of deep listening. Lightening things up, we will turn to drawing games! Students will become confident with the tools of expression. This course is ideal for both beginners and experienced drawers.
