Beginning Drawing 2: Chiaroscuro

 

This 6-week chiaroscuro drawing course is designed to guide beginners through the fundamentals of creating depth and emotion using light and shadow in drawing. Starting with an introduction to chiaroscuro and its historical significance, participants will learn about the theory of light and shadow, how to set up and light a still life for dramatic effect, and the basics of creating a range of values without color. Special topics will include drama, mystery, and composition. The course covers practical skills such as sketching techniques, developing form, and enhancing depth, volume, and mood in your drawings. Through a series of projects—from creating detailed studies of light and shadow to experimenting with composition and atmosphere—participants will apply what they’ve learned, developing their ability to use a variety of tones to create striking and emotive artwork.
