Learn to create realistic drawings with clarity and expressiveness with Teaching Artist Brandon Liesen. Students will use photographs and from-life references to explore the principles and techniques of how to render light and form to produce believable drawings in charcoal. Subjects will include portraits, still life, landscapes, animals, etc.

This course focuses on using charcoal as a medium and is not a technical drawing course. Geared towards beginners but open to all.
