Realistic Drawing for All Levels Monday January 7-March 11 7-9pm $195 The two main things that make a realistic art look real are 'forms and values'. In the beginning of the class, we will get right into the bottom of the real causes of what makes it hard to see the forms and values right. Once each student understands why we make these common errors, we will practice to switch the way we see 'forms and values', through the various methods of visual "training wheels" old masters used. You will have a number of "ahh" moments both from the new understanding and the notable improvement of your work. This class will teach you very valuable fundamental principles and skills for the representational art of all mediums. More instructor details @visionscribe. $25 drop-in space permitting.
