Learn how to draw anything you can see, including people, or whatever you can imagine for that matter. Discover the laws of perspective, how to judge proportion, and to create the illusion of 3-dimensional space with realistic shadows. Learn how to mix colors, and to use them to express yourself.  This is an entry level course, with no prior experience necessary. Each sequential step of the curriculum is designed to build confidence, and to lay the foundation for free self expression. Students create their own personal portfolios, and have the opportunity to show their work in the Dublin Gallery.  Knowing how to draw is no less than learning how to see, and that is the fundamental knowledge underlying all the visual arts. This is a great course to lay the foundation for other art courses, and to discover your own interest in the visual art fields.  This course may be repeated for elective credit.
