In this all new beginner’s class we’ll be learning how to shade using charcoal by focussing on chiaroscuro—the art of pushing light and dark values to their limits. Favoured by artists such as Rembrandt, Chiaroscuro is a way to create drawings and paintings with instantly dramatic tones, and is a good way for beginners to dive into the world of values.
Taught by Ann Mackowski, you can expect a detailed breakdown of drafting and finishing chiaroscuro drawings on charcoal using on-screen demonstrations and visual breakdowns of the figures we’ll be drawing--and by the end of class a newfound understanding of how to add drama to your work.
Paintbrush (recommended), q tip, smudger, or any other material with which to smudge the charcoal
