Pre-College: Drawing I

with Roger Chavez


Strengthen your drawing ability and build your college portfolio. Learn to draw what you see with confidence! Work from still life arrangements, PAFA’s renowned collection, interior spaces, and the human figure, to master foundational elements: shape, contour line, composition, light and shadow, texture, and perspective. Students practice sight-drawing and measuring techniques and learn ways of defining form and space. This course teaches important skills for all artmaking, including for painting and other disciplines. Live model fee is included in the tuition.

Students are responsible for providing all their own materials.

A materials list will be emailed to registered students two weeks before class and made available on PAFA's website.
