Dog Drawing

This class is for all dog lovers! Animal portraitist Jana Komaritsa will be your guide as you discover different ways of sketching and drawing with various materials, for example, pencil, charcoal and ink. We will study the anatomy of dogs and learn how to create a quick sketch as well as more detailed drawings.  Please prepare the photos of dogs you would like to work fromNo experience required!

Guidance about preparing the photos: It can be any dog photo, either a portrait, or full body. Several photos can be used, as we might create several sketches in class. It is better to have both the portrait and full body available, so that we can practice both. The photo should be clear, not blurry. 

If you feel more comfortable, you can trace the outlines on paper in advance, using graphite transfer paper before the class.  You can also use this technique instead of transfer paper.

Material list: Students can choose any drawing/sketching tool to use during class, it can be only charcoal for example, or only pencils. No need to have everything listed. Jana will be working with pencils and charcoal.

Paper for sketching: sketchpad, sketchbook, or several sheets of quality paper/charcoal paper/colored paper. White/off-white, or other light colors. Darker colors can also be used. In this case we will use lighter tools for drawing.  9×12, letter size or similar is fine.

Drawing tools: pencils, charcoal sticks, charcoal pencils, sanguine, drawing pens, or sharpies  (it can be a set or individual), Pencil sharpener, Eraser (rubber/kneaded), Blending stumps/tortillions – useful for pastel/charcoal and similar (in not using pens only).

ZOOM details will be emailed to registrants prior to the class.
