Drawing From Your Imagination

Do you have imaginative ideas for drawings but do not know where to start? This class will take you through the steps to bring your ideas to fully finished pieces. Students will explore composition, focus, and movement in imagery as well as the importance of thumbnail and preliminary sketches, selection of drawing material, image size, and surface choices needed to complete a rendered drawing that brings imaginative ideas to reality.
