Drawing Fundamentals: Using a Grid

Join us at KIFA for this informative workshop spanning 2 Monday evenings

  • Started Jul 8
  • 49 US dollars
  • KIFA - Kent Island Federation of Arts

Service Description

Our drawing instructor Karen will review the basic principals of "seeing and drawing" to create forms using shape, contour lines, and value/shading, then go over several ways an artist might transfer a subject to their drawing or painting surface. Next she'll focus in on the benefit and method of using a grid to set up a scene from life as well as from a photograph. Students will have an opportunity to bring in their own photo to draw from in week 2, with time given for practice with guidance from the instructor. Materials List: -Drawing pencils of your choice (please bring a set that includes pencils of varying hardness. They may include graphite and charcoal. If you took Karen's first class, Drawing Fundamentals: Seeing and Drawing at KIFA, the materials you have are fine. If you'd like recommendations, please reach out and we'll send some suggestions!) -sketchbook -kneaded eraser -pencil sharpener -photo of a subject you would like to draw, printed out on paper, at least 5x7 -ruler -tape (masking or scotch)
