For those who have taken a beginner drawing class and wish to improve their drawing skills, this online class will refine your understanding of visual language through various drawing exercises. Using chalks, pastels, charcoal and graphite, you’ll continue to refine your drawing and creative skills and become more skilled with the tools of visual expression. You will learn how to identify and practice scale, composition, perspective and value through demonstrations and hands-on learning, as well as build your understanding of light and contrast through greyscale and colour. The online drawing course will be structured to include shorter to longer activities and prompts, where students will be exposed to drawing the figure, landscape, still life, as well as abstract expressionist drawing.
