FROM THE TEACHER

By the end of this course, you will no longer have to resort to drawing stick figures! Once you practice drawing proportions of the human body, faces, and hands you will have chances to refine your figure drawing in various projects, including story illustrations.

This course focuses on creating realistic-looking artworks and offers a chance to explore various drawing techniques while using charcoal, watercolor pencils, ink, and oil pastels in your projects. In addition to drawing people and thinking more about how man is made in the Image of God, you will have chances to reflect nature in art through landscapes and animal projects.

If you love to draw and want to be challenged, this is the class for you!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

Student Feedback

I really liked how some of the assignments and what we were learning in this course related back to the Bible, and that she assigned us to take some time to consider about them and make biblical connections.

I enjoyed working with different art mediums. The assignments were sometimes challenging, but were fun to do. The examples and/or tutorials that were provided were helpful.
