Drawing Basics

with Russel Whitten


Class has begun

Beginners & Beyond - Sketching

Capturing simple landscape drawings will be the plan for this outdoors class. Learn the art of simplifying landscapes into basic values and putting it down on paper. Work primarily in charcoal as you explore contour, depth, composition and perspective derived from the observation of natural objects. We will discuss drawing media and papers.

Note: 6 ft spacing between students will be maintained and masks worn where appropriate.

Required: A chair, drawing book pad, Vine Charcoal, Compressed Charcoal, a basic pencil and a gum or kneaded rubber eraser (approx. $20). Recommended: TV tray table or easel.

Russel Whitten, a local artist/teacher, studied at The Art Students League of New York, Heartwood College of Art, and is a member of The Ogunquit Art Association/Barn Gallery. Students love his easy, supportive style.
