Line & Contour

The placement of strong lines is one of the most important skills one can learn as an artist. Grounding your subject in space and place them accurately within your design. Composition is very important.

Structural Drawing

Training your eye to see perspective more accurately working with geometric shapes.

The Plumb Line

The plumb-lines help us to place our landmarks and proportions, of the figure or landscape we are looking at, into its correct placement on our paper.

Value

Becoming more comfortable with various materials, will help you gain more control over the value ranges in your drawings. Practicing drawing a range of values using charcoal, ink and more will aid you in capturing shadows, highlights and transitional areas.

Form

Form is one of the most challenging elements to capture accurately in drawing. Blocking in forms of all shapes, analyzing light and shadow defining each item.

Working on a Toned Ground

Explore new value-building skills with toned ground. Tone papers or just adding tone to your white paper before drawing. Play with values from lightest lights and darkest darks creating a range of value with tone.

Color Media
