All-Levels Drawing Class

Wednesday evenings from 5-8pm

November 8th, 15th & 29th 2017

This all-levels drawing class will focus on the development of still life compositions in various lighting conditions. Using charcoal, kneaded eraser, and newsprint instruction, we'll cover techniques and strategies for charcoal rendering. Includes everything from setting up your pad and lighting a composition to development of figure-ground relationships, perspective, value shift, line, contour, and expressive mark-making as visual language. In-class exercises will emphasize “seeing” and range from short gestural drawings to longer analytical and detailed renderings.

Instructor Karl Schwiesow earned his BFA in sculpture and ceramics from Sierra Nevada College and received his MFA in ceramics from the University of Montana.  Currently the Artist in Residence at Sonoma Community Center, Karl brings a great wealth of expertise and experience to this three class series where students will exercise and develop drawing skills.
