Tone underpins a lot of big issues in art – composition, mood, light, space and form. This class will examine these aspects of artmaking through tonal drawing using a variety of subjects from still life to interiors to self-portraits. Tonal drawing is a way to discover the subtleties and drama of value while also learning to organize an image with darks and lights. Plus, it can serve as a bridge to painting since it deals with masses more than lines. Each class will include critiques of homework, discussion of ideas with master images as examples and demonstrations by the instructor.
