Class Description: Drawing was once taught with the 3R's to develop skill and satisfaction. Van Gogh said, 'It's looking at things for a long time that ripens you and gives you a deeper understanding.' Pursue the study of Art and Design by keeping an illustrated journal and learn to really 'see.' This class uses your life as the vehicle for training the 4 A's: Alertness...Appreciation...Aim...and...Art. Our medium will primarily be pen and watercolor as we focus on gesture, contour, dealing with 'mistakes,' positive/negative space, lettering, elements of design, color and perspective; as well as reviewing famous artists' work. Learning to draw on-location and keep a journal is key for future art careers. I'm a graphic designer who draws daily'for more than 'practice' (see, learning repeatedly that what I haven't drawn, I've never really seen.
