This Introduction to Drawing is designed for adults new to drawing or those wishing to develop and further refine their drawing skills. Artist Denise Nonomura will focus on the essential elements required for representational drawing and will start with topics such as observation, shape, value, proportion, perspective, focal point, composition, light and shadow, shading and texture. Participants will work through various drawing exercises using still life set ups and photos. Group instruction and individual guidance will be provided as students incorporate the fundamental elements learned into fully rendered drawings.
