Steady Lane by Paula Gottlieb

Learning to draw is about learning to see and learning the concepts for translating this seeing onto paper. In this class we will work with the elements of line, shape, value, mass and proportion to create the illusion of three dimensions on paper. Through observation of the still life and interior space, we will explore the use of compositional studies and perspective to create depth. The fee is $190 plus material list below.
