Section B: This 11 session, two hour class meets Friday mid-day at 12:30pm from September 16, 2016, through November 25, 2016. 

For absolute beginners. This class is also great for experienced drawers who don’t love to draw, or haven't drawn in a while, or want to loosen or open up their drawing. Emphasis is placed equally on seeing and expression, description and the pleasure of making. Exercises break down students’ preconceptions about how drawings come about, so that drawing becomes a matter of truly human scale exploration and experimentation, rather than the product of giant leaps of talent and inspiration.

Materials: Please bring the following materials to the first class meeting and wear clothes you don't mind getting charcoal on:

two 4b or 6b graphite sticks

one white vinyl eraser

two soft charcoal pencils

one soft charcoal pencil with peel off wrapping

six to twelve sticks of compressed charcoal

three to six pieces of vine or willow charcoal, any size

Paper, drawing boards, clips, drawing horses and easels will be provided by the studio.
