28 S Linn St. Iowa City
You can learn about observation and drawing what you see rather than what you think you see—how to see things as basic shapes and turn those shapes into drawings. You will learn about how light works and how to draw it, and how to create that illusion of three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface. You will explore some different drawing techniques in a variety of drawing projects. Required text: Carl Purcell. Your Artist’s Brain. Cincinnati, OH: North Light Books, 2010. Approx. $27 in stores, less online. Suggested materials: Ebony or other drawing pencils, white vinyl eraser, kneaded eraser, pencil sharpener and 14 X 17 or 14 X 18 drawing pad.
