Over the years I have had the privilege of witnessing many individuals learn to draw for the first time as their eyes opened to a new way of seeing the world around them. After these classes, I have found myself wanting to take my students beyond the contours of their newly found sight, and into seeing values and three-dimensional form. Creating convincing values and textures has always been my favorite aspect of the drawing process. Let's spend the day together as I share with you all the "shading" skills I have learned over the years, through both the academic and the intuitive expressive techniques. This class is for those who have never been introduced to these skills and techniques, as well as those who wish to further their own drawing skills.
In this class we will explore in-depth a variety of techniques for applying value to our drawings, thus increasing the illusion of three-dimensional form. We will warm up with learning how to add hatching and cross-hatching to our ink contour drawings. Then I will share with you my techniques for creating values with a more controlled use of graphite and continuous tone. Lastly we will loosen up, experiment and have fun using my current favorite tools to create expressive lines and values with water-soluble mediums.
