Drawing from the Masters   

Drawing from the flat is a time-honored method of learning how to draw by copying the works of master artists' drawings to garner their wisdom. Copywork is an ideal opportunity for artists of all levels to observe line, shape, value, form, texture, and space. In our sessions, we'll study portraits, still life, and landscapes created by great artists past and present and re-create pieces of their works. By emulating da Vinci's line quality and his use of cross-hatching, for example, you will better understand his techniques, and perhaps apply this insight to your own artistic style. Basic drawing skills are recommended. Please bring a 14 x 17-inch pad of good quality white charcoal paper, three General's charcoal pencils (2B medium), and a kneaded eraser to the first class. Additional supplies will be discussed in class.
