BEGINNING DRAWING The objective of this workshop is to develop basic drawing skills. This course will focus primarily on drawing from observation. The first 2 days will be spent on drawing a simple still life in graphite and the final 2 days will be spent drawing a portrait from life with charcoal. This course is just as much about learning how to see and sharpening visual awareness as it is about drawing. Refer to Summer Citizens website: http://summercitizens.usu.edu/CourseInfo.cfm for a detailed list of supplies and daily course schedule. All drawing supplies are an additional cost per student, not included in registration fees.
