Freehand Drawing means drawing from life without any pencil sketches underneath. Blank pages are scary in a delicious way, watching images appear from nothing is thrilling, and the rhythm of observing and making marks is centering. In this class, you will learn to tap into this meditative experience by learning to look, training your hands and drawing simple objects and figures. This class is just right if you are a beginning drawer, or if you want to loosen up your drawing style.
Series One: Line Drawing
In this series, we will focus on drawing freehand line art. We will train our eyes to find lines, accurately recognize curves, analyze proportion, and notice negative space. We will also learn fun, meditative exercises to train our hands to control curved and straight lines. We will ease into drawing objects, starting with tracing, and move up to simple freehand.
September 14- class #1: Lines and Curves
September 28- class #2: Proportions
October 12- class #3: Negative Space and Reading Between the Lines.
- Sketchbook (I really like the A4 (approx 8.5×11) size Fabriano EcoqQua sketchbooks)
- Pens in multiple widths. For example, Micron pens in a size 1 or 2 and a size 8.
- A black marker, such as a Sharpie.
- (optional, but nice to have): Tracing paper
- I assume you have access to a camera and a printer
