This class consists of exercises and activities that build on the skills learned in Drawing Boot Camp: Basic Training.
We explore new materials and techniques to expand the drawing repertoire. There is an introduction to color and the different ways it can be used to further round out drawings. Investigations of abstraction will bring new dimensions and variety to the work. We move beyond the purely visual to make drawings that express concepts and ideas.
Completion of the first Drawing Boot Camp class is not required, but a working knowledge of basic drawing skills will make Special Ops a more rewarding experience for the student.
