2019 Spring Class

ABC’s of Drawing

Instructor: Barbara McCarthy

Thursdays •  3/21-5/9 • 1:00-3:00 PM

Location: Jewett 295

The ability to draw is being able to see what is observed and to transfer that observation to paper. Fundamental drawing skills and techniques can be learned. We will use exercises to encourage the right side of the brain to do the work of “seeing”. With practice, it will gradually become easier to switch consciously into intuitive visual perception. “What the eye can see, the hand can draw.” –Michelangelo. Materials provided. Studio
