Form and Texture in Graphite 1
April 1 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Thursdays, April 1 and 15
This virtual class delves deeply into using graphite to accurately depict simple botanical subjects using fruits and vegetables. Emphasis will be on highlights, midtones, and shadow areas. Using a light source and three-dimensional armature, artists will understand concave and convex shapes. Students complete a three-part series of drawings, line, armature, and full tonal graphite drawing.
