"Eggs" a drawing exercise in spheres and value, Charcoal on Paper
by Madi, Age 11
"Fruit" charcoal on Paper, Madi age 11.
During Madi's second lesson, we worked on spheres, and practed seeing speres in everyday objects.
Beginning students will start out with charcoal drawing. Students will learn about shape, value, composition, perspective, and other draftsmanship and design skills in this black and white medium.
Students will begin by practicing drawing house-household objects and move to more complicated subjects such as portraits, animals, landscapes, architecture, etc. Depending on a student's interests, the same skills can be taught from different subjects. Drawings will always be done from life, never photographs at this stage.
Each student will have their own materials, which they bring home after lessons to practice. Suggested homework is given, but not required. Students do learn best if they get additional practice outside of weekly lessons.
Once students have mastered the fundamentals of drawing (to be determined on a case by case basis), They can begin painting lessons.
Diana teaches oil painting. Painting lessons build upon drawing skills and focus on understanding of the medium, color theory, developing a personal style, and knowledge of art history.
