This course is an exciting balance of learning how to see and how to capture contours, apply tones, and develop shading to make objects ‘pop’ off the page. With the basic understanding that in order to draw well, one must first learn how to see, students are engaged in fun looking exercises that challenge them to use their eyes and minds to collect information about the objects, people, and places around them. They will discover how to see the world in a fresh, new way! Different approaches, tools, materials, and techniques are presented and explored using a diverse range of media, from pen and pencil to color explorations in pastel and paint.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 6-8. Learning to draw the human face and figure realistically can be fun, explorative, and expressive. In this course, students draw from observation to learn basic proportional guidelines and techniques for drawing the face and figure. Beginning with quick gesture drawings, a sequential range of exercises is planned to sharpen students’ perceptual skills and their understanding of the human form. Using both wet and dry media, students use each other and professional costumed models as subject matter for portraits and figure compositions. Students also have opportunity to view a variety of master figurative works from history as they explore expressive use of gesture, line, and color. Note: No class on October 17.
