In this class students will learn how to take a simple drawing and compose it to become dynamic and appealing. Basic concepts such as the rule of thirds, point of view and asymmetry to create a more dramatic effect will be demonstrated and practiced. Both days will consist of creating thumbnail drawings to perform quick studies. The chosen thumbnails will then be transferred into larger full-size drawings. The class will learn how to create flow in their drawings that will direct the eye to move across the piece and reach a focal point. Students will learn point of view and angles to enhance drama and excitement. They will also learn to force or exaggerate perspective to create movement and animate a drawing. Students will work with graphite pencils to sketch thumbnail drawings, but final full-size drawings may use either pencil or charcoal on paper.
