Introduction to Art students are completing drawings in pencil and charcoal, concentrating on reproducing dark and light values and correct proportions as they draw from observation. Everyone is learning that looking carefully is the key to drawing realistically.
Students are looking forward to using color. Before we begin painting, students will learn about color theory, mixing colors, and creating watercolor value charts. We will be examining how colors change in light and shadow as students complete still life paintings in the coming weeks.
