Drawing for Painters is a new art class offered at the Art Guild's Plateau Creative Arts Center by special guest artist Dawn Whitelaw. Most drawing classes focus on making a beautiful drawing. This class is designed for painters and is structured to address the specific drawing skills that are needed for painting. The students will be shown techniques of seeing proportions, angles, relative size and edge. Emphasis will be on helping each student find which of the approaches to drawing will be most effective for them to use.
The Drawing for Painters class is open to students at all skill levels, however the class is tailored for people who have painting experience. In this class, the students will be working with drawing media and are asked to bring their own drawing supplies including a sketchbook (9 x 12 - 12 x 16) or paper clipped to a board, pencil and eraser and sharpener or vine charcoal and kneaded eraser.
