    West L

    Drawing and Mixed Media

    with Linda West

    The class will teach the basics of structural drawing, depicting light and shadow, and composition through the study of still-life objects, casts, and portraits from photographs. The class is designed to give students a clear process of observing and drawing that can be used both for simple objects and more complicated subjects.

    The information and techniques to which the students are exposed will be classical, whether working in charcoal, graphite, conté, pastels, or oil sketches. They will progress from line and tone to limited and full-color work. The ultimate goal will be to enable each student to execute personal and independent statements through their work.

    The class is open to all skill levels. Beginning students, or students who have been away from art for a long time, will find a harmonious and encouraging atmosphere. More advanced students will be encouraged to work on their own personal projects and experimentation with materials is encouraged.  Come learn, experiment, create and have fun!
