Exploring a wide range of techniques using charcoal, pencil, ink and various media, students will draw from the model, still life, the beautiful Umbrian landscape, and Assisi’s historic, early renaissance architecture. Classes include daily exercises where we’ll focus on structure, line, light and shadow and discussions of master works from the renaissance to the modern to sharpen your ability to see and improve your technique, and translate your personal vision to paper.
