Draw, Draw with Paint, Paint!

with Jennifer Linskey


In this class we will start out drawing in black and white with graphite and/ or charcoal. We’ll look at measuring, size relationships, and object placement. Then we’ll segue to drawing with a brush and draw en grisaille whereby we use: just black, white, and gray paint. This will allow us to think about and get a firm grasp of value (our lights to darks). During the last weeks of class we’ll explore limited color palettes, but get maximum mileage out of the colors we are using, as we’ll continue to see color in terms of value. You'll come away having honed drawing skills, begun training your eye to see subtle shifts in light to dark, and gained color mixing knowledge. Join us as we draw, both traditionally and with a brush, and gradually move toward incorporating color. *No Class: 4/20, 5/18, 6/8.
