Drawing

At Southwest School of Art, we believe that no matter what their area of emphasis, every emerging artist needs a strong foundation in Drawing.  It is a learned skill that relies heavily upon on hand-eye coordination and which is an ability that, in time, can be mastered by just about everyone.  We build upon the basic foundation by further encouraging students to experiment with style, form, and structure.  

Drawing Material List

Material list is either listed in the class description, will be discuss during the first class, or the materials will be supplied.

Cartooning, or visual storytelling, is more than just an enjoyable indulgence of the imagination; it speaks to interests such as editorial illustration, children's book illustration, comic strips, comic books and storyboarding. Its various forms combine caricature, figure drawing and illustration through the medium of ink and watercolor on paper. Instruction will focus on character development, illusions of movement, sequential staging, setting management, inking, and coloring?all aimed towards the refinement of the student's narratives and ideas. Bring a 9 by 12-inch sketchbook and a sharpened pencil to the first class. No class Nov 1 & 22.
