Drawing: All you need is desire.
Drawing is Beneficial but Optional, you are welcome to paint the First Day of Class.
Our unique Specialty of a Step by Step How to Drawing Progam designed by Chris to empower artists starting with your own level of ability uses a Duel Approach with Old Master Principles in Today’s art. This builds a solid foundation transforming the way you approach art. Understand and connect drawing principles which equip you to succeed.
Two major approaches to art today we teach A Classical Approach and a Direct Approach. A Classical Approach teaches TouchPoint Drawing by proportionally measuring from a photograph or from life to develop the artist eye and touch, also understanding the cause and effect of art principles. Direct Approach is seeing shapes and Values and blocking them in without pre-drawing. There are unique benefits of each approach.
The artist chooses which approach by what they want the outcome to be, therefore telling a story. Having an understanding of the different ways to use the art tools: Color, Contrast, Texture, Pattern & Shape opens up a language for the artist to use, see more “How We Are Different” Page.
Classroom setting with a good mix of Drawing and Painting artists. Work individually at your own pace and level. Each day there is a lecture that benefits the art class as a whole, using art applications, demos, tips, solutions, instructions.
