How do you create the illusion of 3-dimensional objects in space on a flat piece of paper? Not by magic, but by “drawing what you see instead of what you think you see.”  This class will introduce the basicfoundations of drawing, upon which every style builds. Participants will explore the basic elements that go into a drawing: line and contour, perspective, value (range of light to dark) using still life, landscape, and portrait exercises. We will look at different examples of masters’ drawings and discuss various approaches of style, technique and media.  In addition to class exercises, students will have the opportunity to create a personal choice piece.

Carol Phenix is a landscape, figure, and portrait painter. She has been published in two HarperCollins JRR Tolkien tribute books and several derivative works including the 1998 Tolkien Calendar. Additionally, she has painted a number of young adult fiction book covers.
