Instructor Jeffrey Marshall, who holds an MFA in painting and printmaking from the Massachusetts College of Art and a BFA in painting from Cornell University, will lead an eight-week class on the fundamentals of drawing. In this course, students will focus on techniques of accuracy as the first step to developing a solid drawing approach. Through practice with composition and visual measuring, students will create drawings whose sense of believability is grounded in correct proportions and a sense of light, shade, and shadow. Once the foundation of reality is established, the class can work on developing a personal language of image making. Class projects will start with basic shapes that develop into more complicated forms. Techniques in still-life, portraiture, and landscape will be used. By the end of the course, each student will have the skills and confidence to draw anything. A supply list for materials will be provided upon registration.
