Presentations and Classes during the remaining Fall 2019 Semester:

 

Introduction to Drawing. A three-part Introduction to Drawing class will be held emphasizing the development of observational drawing skills and hand-eye coordination. Basic drawing elements such as line, proportion, perspective, composition, texture, and the study of light and shade are investigated through various perceptual and conceptual approaches. The class is open to beginning students as well as those who want to refresh their skills before moving on to more advanced studio courses. It is taught by Professor Michael Hughes who is a practicing artist and member of the Fine Arts Faculty at SCCC. The class will meet on three Fridays, October 11, 18 and 25, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in the Art Gallery, Room C106 (located by the entrance to the "B" building).

The course fee is $30.00. Students are required to bring their own drawing supplies. Basic tools should include a large newsprint pad and a very basic drawing kit containing charcoal pencils, graphite drawing pencils, charcoal sticks and an eraser. Pre-registration is required and space is limited.
