Working from still life objects and the interior, we will draw with line and shape, create differing values, design the composition, and draw a convincing sense of volume and light. With each class we will concentrate on one particular element of art, or principal of design. Charcoal is easy to use. You can smudge it, erase it, cover a large area quickly, and change your mind about the composition. We will work on a large format. Each class there are new and multiple arrangements from which to work. Beginning and advanced students are welcome. Advanced students can push the boundaries of their work, making them more expressive of ideas.

Note: Working with charcoal and paper can be very drying to hands. Bring hand cream.
