Led by Earl Weldon

Class size is limited to 20. We're asking the waitlisted people from last September's course first!

Register for this FREE series at Abington Free Library, 1030 Old York Road, Abington, PA 19001, email kburnham@mclinc.org, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15 or here.

April 9 - Creating 3-D space on a 2-D sheet of paper - Using size, overlapping, 1- and 2-point perspective to create the illusion of depth in drawing

April 23 - Seeing and rendering light and shadow - Discussion of light and how it defines form for our eyes

April 30 - Bringing the drawing to life - Shading techniques, blurring, hatching, cross-hatching, etc.

May 14 - Learning to see - Breaking free of mental conventions, attention to negative space

May 28 - Working both ends from the middle - Experimenting with adding both the lights AND the darks ... a drawing exercise with white chalk and pencil/charcoal on grey paper

 

All sessions have an initial teaching segment, followed by drawing time. Students can bring in additional drawings, done during the week and utilizing the prior week’s skill, which Earl can critique for them.

Starting with the first class, bring:

  • at least 3 sharpened pencils (#2 pencils are fine)
  • 3 or 4 sheets of paper at least 9” x 12” but not bigger than 11” x 17”
  • Eraser (if there are good erasers on your pencils, that’s fine, or bring a separate  eraser, hard or kneaded)

 
Later in the classes we’ll also want:  

  • at least 3 better quality drawing pencils of different leads
  • a kneaded eraser
  • a sketch pad at least 9” x 12”
  • several sheets of 9” x 12” light or medium grey paper
