Beyond the Basics: Drawing with Linda Hillier

Artist's statement:

"With many years of teaching experience, I am energized by the sharing of knowledge and skills and seeing each person's unique artistic development."

This course is for those artists interested in advancing their drawing skills, beyond the basics. We will review the elements of art emphasizing Line, Value, Shape, Space and Texture with an emphasis on representational work. 

There will be plenty of time to try out a variety of mediums and learn the advantages of each. The work of various artists will be discussed. There will be a final still life composition where  you will be able to choose your medium and apply your newly found or rediscovered skills. We will also discuss contemporary drawing and mark making.
