Pencil Drawing for Adults
Dec 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Pencil Drawing for Adults

Learn to draw the basic shapes and forms. Learn shading techniques using line and crosshatching.

For those who have mastered the basics, explore the use of negative spaces, perspective, understanding key values and contrasts. Build upon your knowledge of advanced shading, textures, and lighting.  Explore objects you are interested in drawing, such as trees, landscapes, animals, still lifes, etc. while learning these techniques.
