Full course description

Saturday, 4/23-5/21/2022, 9:30am-12:00pm

Instructor Linda Hope

This class is an overview of some basic elements of drawing: gesture, mass, surface, line, and value. Using guided and timed exercises with self-selected and favorite objects, revisit each of these processes singly, and then in combination to create nuanced, and complex drawings that are full of life! While some observational or responsive drawing experience is recommended, all levels are welcome!

Workshops are taught online through Zoom and Canvas. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. A device to capture images (digital camera, smart phone, or tablet, etc.) is helpful, but not required.

Materials List


· 2B, 4B, 6B Graphite Drawing Pencils

· General “Sketching” or Ebony Graphite Drawing Pencil

· Medium (4B) and Soft (6B) Charcoal Pencils

· Ball point pen (cheap Bics are fine)

· Micron Marker or Pitt Artist Pen (.25 mm – .5 mm) Black

· 3 or 4 pack of Graphite Sticks 2B – 6B softness

· 2B Black Conte Crayon. This is only sold in a 2 pack.

· Kneaded Eraser

· Magic Rub or Plastic Eraser

· Small pencil sharpener

· 9 x 12” or 11 x 14” Sketch Book with 50-65 lb. paper. The heavier the paper, the more durable the surface will be.

Optional: These mediums create some dust, which isn’t so great around electronic devices. You may want to have these for independent work, when you are not in front of your computer.

· 2B, 4B, 6B Compressed Charcoal Sticks. Look for a 3 or 4 pack of Compressed Charcoal Sticks with a range of hardness and softness.

· Several Sticks of Vine or Willow Charcoal, Soft. Try to get medium or large stick sizes because those are easier to hold while you are drawing.
