Join Burlington artist Michael Strauss in this collaborative class for beginners and those with a little drawing experience. You will learn how to use graphite, charcoal and ink, how to create the illusion of light and depth in a drawing, as well as the basics of composition. We will also explore eye- hand coordination, how remembered images affect our drawings, as well as how self judgement can impede the drawing process. The class will be a fun, pleasant shared experience with lots of feedback from the instructor.
