For many artists, pencil drawing is the skill that introduced them to the art world, and even if you’ve moved on to a different medium, understanding how to draw with a pencil can help you improve your skills elsewhere. Basic pencil drawing techniques such as shading, understanding light and shadow, focus and blending can help you to understand the basics of drawing and set you off to creating your first professional drawing! The class will also offer advice on the tools and materials you need to know, such as varying pencils and graphite, blending stumps, paper options, and different erasers.
