If you are a middle school aged student (5-8 th grade) who either loves to draw, are afraid to draw but secretly want to try, or are just interested in trying it out, Drawing Lab is for you! In this 8-week series students will experiment with new and unexpected ways to approach drawing that include both working from life and using your imagination. Each week you will be introduced to a different technique or principle: such as basics of line, mark making, shading, perspective, uses of erasing and smudging, and composition. We will also use a variety of materials such as: pencil, ink, charcoal, and marker. Come explore your own personal drawing style and develop practical technical skills while creating many finished drawings that you will feel proud of!
