In this course, students will learn how to complete realistic drawings in colored pencil and scratchboard from conception and composition to completion. We will explore the entire artistic process, including taking reference photos, deciding how to best compose artwork, transferring and enlarging images, as well as techniques to create realistic drawings. Prior experience in art is helpful but not required. Students should be ready to push their drawing skills to the next level!
