Beginner Through Advanced
With Randy Mayer
by Randy Mayer
Beneath every great piece of art is a great drawing. Randy’s drawing class will be structured to give you the fundamentals necessary to improve your skills and do your own “great drawing”. Whether you would like to be able to do a “vacation sketch”, a drawing for a painting or one to stand on its own, this is the class for you.
You will learn various observational skills and drawing techniques including perspective, tonal values with different media, making marks to achieve tone such a crosshatching, shading, etc. You will also learn basic portraiture and the elements of figure drawing. Randy will teach drawing from still life as well as working from photos. She will also introduce various drawing media including, graphite, and ink and washes, as well as experimenting on different papers.
