Pre-College: Drawing II

with Roger Chavez


Further develop your observational skills, strengthen your drawing ability, and build yourself a robust college portfolio. The focus of this course will be on drawing from intensive observation. You will hone your visual tools as we work from still life, landscape, and portraits as subjects. Art students will explore both historic and contemporary drawing materials and become familiar with a variety of techniques, understanding their characteristics and limitations. This class will also examine the work of both historic and contemporary artists. In this way, we will not only be making art but also working to form a greater understanding of the two-dimensional visual language. Live model fee is included in the tuition.

Students are responsible for bringing all art supplies. A materials list will be emailed to registered students two weeks before class and made available on PAFA's website.
