Fundamentals of Art

barry drawing

Always wanted to learn how to draw but didn’t think you could? Or are you an experienced artist wanted to firm up some fundamentals or try something new? This is the class for you!

For beginners – we start with simple still life set-ups to learn fundamentals of drawing. Yes, it will be a lot of cups and bowls and apples at first, but it is necessary to use simple objects in order to be able to understand the tools you will be given. These tools will let you draw anything you want once we’re through with the basics. We move on to learning tones to create volume and depth. From there, work continues into portraits to pull it all together. From there, you tell me where you want to go. It will take 3-6 months to go through these levels, depending on your comprehension and attendance. But it’s worth spending the time learning the basics so you can then apply them to everything else!

For experienced artists – It’s up to you as to what you’d like to do. Always wanted to try watercolor? Need to brush up on color theory? Want to create your own comic book? Need help learning anatomy and get better at drawing people? Let me know and I’ll make a plan so you can get better!

Although this is a group class, every student works at their own pace and receives individual attention. Class size is limited.

Class is open to everyone ages 15 through 115. All you need is enthusiasm!
