Event Description: This class is for all levels of skill who want to learn to draw. It can teach you to draw even though you feel you have little talent. If you enjoy drawing but haven’t been able to get much beyond a childlike level, it’ll show you how to gain the skill you’ve always wanted. If you are already drawing as a professional, it will give you greater confidence and deepen your artistic perceptions. We’ll implement a basic set of exercises designed to tap into the special abilities of the visual, perceptual right hemisphere of the brain. We’ll encompass lighting and shading, 3-dimensional drawing, and using your imagination to create images already in your mind instead of just what you see in front of you. This concept goes beyond what is covered in the book this class in based on: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards. Students only need to bring drawing pencils, sketch pads, erasers, pictures of a subject they would like to draw and their brain, of course!
Lija Moore is an artist/painter/graphic designer of 25+ years who has recently moved to the Sarasota area and is looking forward to sharing her skills and enthusiasm for creating from each one’s own imagination and soul. Express yourself with drawing!
