Acclaimed teacher Linda Bond presents a class where you can open your eyes and engage in the drawing process as you learn to see in fresh, new ways. Open to students with little or no drawing experience or those who would like to refresh their skills.
Everyone can learn to draw and, with practice, draw well. Drawing is mostly about looking at the world around us and noticing our visual experiences. In this class you can open your eyes and engage in the drawing process as you learn to see in fresh, new ways.
Up until the early 1900’s drawing was taught in elementary schools along with reading and writing. A way to record and preserve the things people saw, drawing also helped with memory and concentration while instilling tranquility and relaxation. Today, drawing can be a wonderful tool for creative expression and an excellent way to balance our busy, distracted lives.
During this five week class we will work & play with a variety of approaches to drawing. We will explore the materials and techniques of drawing while we develop a new language of “seeing”. Open to students with little or no drawing experience as well as those who would like to refresh their drawing skills.
Please note that this course comprises five 2.5 hour classes. You only need to register and pay once. Please see first class listing on October 24 to register.
A list of materials needed for the course will be sent to students upon registration.
