Fundamentals of Drawing

Course Syllabus/ Description

Anyone who lacks confidence in drawing or feels there are gaps in their drawing experience will love our Fundamentals of Drawing course.
During the 1-year course, students will learn a wide range of
fundamental drawing skills including: scale; proportion;
crosshatching; an understanding of how light affects form; drawing
from life; 1-point, 2-point, and atmospheric perspectives; composition rules and planning; thumbnail sketches; and an introduction to
portraiture. In every class the instructor will demonstrate a skill used to create a new drawing, students will follow in class with
instructor feedback as desired, and any unfinished work can be completed before the next class. Drawings include everyday objects,
animals, trees, landscape, still-life, cityscape, and drawing portraits from your imagination, and you will draw a realistic
portrait of a person of your choosing!

Class is held once every other week for 1 hour, $25 per class, and
payment of $50 is made monthly.

Sofia S. Kang

Instructor Bio

I have been teaching the Bargue Drawing Course for one year and have received instruction in oil painting under the guidance of Ed Salazar and Chris Kolupski. I have my own studio where I’ve been working on commissions in oil, and to explore and play, which is what art is about. I love going to art museums where my preference is in post-impressionist art and the Italian Renaissance, among others. It is a pleasure to help you on your artistic journey and share with you the passion for art, a gift from God.
