deb3321 is hosting a 6-week still-life drawing course taught by classically trained European artist

Christine Haenen.  This class improves skills in visualizing three-dimensional space, expressing itin to a two-dimensional format.  Using the complex shapes found in still life and working in black and white using charcoal and pencil, students learn how to work with within the unique challenges each approach and media presents. 


This course goes into depth about the core techniques needed in any artist's practice. Christine will cover topics such as the fundamentals of volume, light logic, perspective, and composition.  The class will also go over how to describe objects with fluency involving line, shape, volume, and texture.  Students will progress from basic shapes to complex still-life and leave the class with a complete compositional piece. 


Experimentation and discussion is encouraged.
