This course will teach basic drawing skills to the beginning artist and refresh the more practiced to see, measure and express a creative illusion of light and dark on a two dimensional surface with the moveable medium of charcoal. 

This class will have fun working with still lifes to learn the rules of composition and perspective with the dramatic use of darks and lights, shadows, shapes and lines with eraser being just as important as the charcoal. It will feel like we are sculpting on paper!
