Description: This graphite drawing class places emphasis on drawing photorealistic images utilizing graded graphite pencils. Working from reference material, usually photographs, the student will learn how to use graphite pencils and other tools to record the effects of light and shadow to create forms, highlights and cast shadows while blending them into images having realistic 3-D appearances. Class discussions will include how to break down images into basic shapes, strategies to transfer images, observing detail, pencil layering and developing contrast. Each student is treated individually and progresses at their own pace. The class is open to all levels–beginner to the more experienced.
