with David Macri

Drawing II: Principals of Design

Level: Intermediate

This class is for students who have some previous drawing experience. Learn how and when to control balance, focus, contrast, scale, gradation, unity, variation, and movement. Together we will examine the process of generating, preparing and developing ideas. Using the language of design, we will learn how to select components to influence and how to get the most out of pen, pencil, and pastel.
