Intro to Drawing – beginner An introduction to the fundamental concepts of drawing- seeing and analyzing shapes, edges, lines, textures, and values. Through exercises and reading handouts, we explore the process of visually analyzing the world and capturing that information down on paper, while learning how to use drawing materials. This process is then applied to drawing still-life objects, landscapes, architecture, people, and animals. This class is live online via Zoom, and all classes will be recorded, with recordings sent out 2-3 days after class. Online class registration is per household, so feel free to gather round the computer with your roomies and take the class together! North Van Arts is committed to offering accessible pricing for our arts education classes.
