Have you always wanted to draw, but don’t believe you can?
A new “Realistic Drawing” class at the Davis Art Center uses the world-famous drawing curriculum, “Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain,” to turn non-artists into confident artists and to help experienced artists rediscover forgotten skills and overcome creative blockages.
The class is organized into a series of seven intensive Saturday workshops for adults and teenagers from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with a one-hour lunch break.
Instructor Danielle Fodor said students should make clear and measurable progress toward mastering the art and practice of drawing, using pencil and paper to represent the physical world. Students will spend special attention on line, perspective, negative/positive space, proportion and drawing the human body.
The series runs from Sept. 17 to Oct. 29, and costs $135 for Davis Art Center members and $145 for nonmembers. Students must provide their own paper, pencils and erasers.
