This classical drawing course was designed for your people in grades 9 to 12 (12 to 19 years old).

They will increase their visual literacy by applying a drawing process, learning new techniques for identifying and correcting drawing errors, and practicing their hand-eye coordination. Students will learn these drawing skills by re-creating a Bargue plate as carefully as possible as they learn proportion, values, and other essential drawing skills. These are time-honored methods of learning to draw what you see in training for future art endeavors. Many famous artists such as Picasso, NC Wyeth, G. Parrish trained in Bargue Drawing.

Working in sight-size and from life, we will examine the process beginning with the preliminary composition on paper in graphite then the transfer to canvas. Discover or review the underpainting by first blocking in the background and working on big shapes.
