Four, two and a half hour classes with Gordon Carter, aimed at providing you with all the basics to learn the craft of beautiful drawing and sketching.
This drawing course begins with an initial consultation with your tutor, which is arranged as you redeem your course by email or phone.
Either by email, phone, or via zoom; you and your tutor will discuss your previous history with drawing and art in general, and what you would like to achieve throughout the four sessions. The primary aim of the consultation is to tailor your course to your specific level of ability and what you would like to learn based on your own desires and needs. In this way, each course is a unique experience designed exclusively for you in collaboration with you.
Depending on your preferences, you may learn the basics in multiple areas, such as: perspective, human proportions, composition, portraiture, an understanding of various graphic materials and how to handle them, how to draw from life, how to draw from photography, the basics of drawing landscapes, the basics of life drawing, the differences between a sketch and a study, how to start a drawing and how to finish it. From the consultation your tutor will sketch out a plan for your four sessions, discuss what materials you will need and where to obtain them, and arrange the scheduling of your class sessions with you.
What is not taught in this course, but is happily offered, is the endless encouragement of your tutor to develop your drawing skills and to take every possible benefit from them.
