A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.” – Paul Klee 

Drawing is simply mark-making; in this class, each student’s confidence will grow through expanded exercises, techniques, and materials. With practice, each student will strengthen their skill set to address the idea of drawing in the 21st Century. Each class will begin with an introduction and display of drawings from traditional to postmodern.
