I also took an art class last winter. I was a little scared at first because I knew nothing beyond using a #2 pencil and binder paper. I just knew that I was able to draw to a degree. I learned SO MUCH in this class! The professor would set up a display or had another student model while each student set up their own easel at different angles around the room and drew what they saw . The class lasted 2 hours, but it FLEW by!The professor introduced me to something called collage art. Callage art takes an abstract angle on things. We used asia ink and were encouraged to use anything from strips of newspaper to papertowels to enhance our drawing. (the white strips portray light on the models back.) it was awesome and I'm glad I did it and the next class I take will be painting.
