For the complete beginner and those wishing to improve their drawing skills, you will be encouraged to let the artist inside you grow through exploration and refining your understanding of visual language. Using charcoal pencils, charcoal sticks, and conté, you’ll begin to develop your drawing and creative skills and become more confident with the tools of visual expression. Composition, proportion, shape, and line will all be explored through in-class exercises and projects.

Andrew Judd is a professional illustrator and art director. An award winning graduate from the Ontario College of Art, he has exhibited in Vienna, Prague, London, Santa Fe, Montreal and Toronto. Andrew had a unique opportunity to learn the traditions of the Art Students League of New York while working for his first employer, William Biddle. Sharing this information with others in private, classroom, and workshop settings has been an important component of his own personal growth as an artist and teacher. Years of working in the business have taught him how critical the fundamentals of good drawing, value relationships and color are to the success of an image. Painting outdoors, in cafes, or working in the comfort of a studio, Andrew believes a simple, orderly, and knowledgeable working process contribute to the success of good art. Andrew’s illustrations are represented by Masterfile, and his original paintings and drawings are available through Westmount Gallery in Toronto. You can see his work at www.andrewjudd.com
"I am entirely captivated by Andrew's knowledge and methods. This is the first class I have taken anywhere with so much potential to grow, expand, learn in the art form I love.” - Brenda Proulx
