Welcome students to a great semester of using a variety of drawing media. The first class we discussed the syllabus and supplies. This coming Monday night we will work with dry/chalk pastels, chamois, soft vine charcoal, kneaded eraser on grey Canson paper.
I will provide a still life set up. If you would prefer your own please do. Just don’t forget an extension cord and light to illuminate your subject.
