Students will explore and develop some key concepts and skills involved in understanding and making drawings through a series of observational drawing exercises. Students will develop the ability to structure representational drawings that incorporate a selection of drawing implements and mediums. Students will also begin to develop and explore their own personal style and approach to drawing. Drawings will be created using photos for reference, and still life compositions created by the students, at home.
Topics covered include: tonal value, line, proportion and collage and composition.
