**This is an adult drawing class.**

Based on Johannes Itten's landmark classes taught at the Bauhaus, this course will introduce students to the basics of drawing. The text "Design and Form," a compilation of exercises from Itten's teachings, will serve as a springboard for examining elements and principles of art and design that include line, value, texture, harmony, and movement. A variety of drawing techniques will be covered as students create works in media such as pencil, charcoal, ink, and conte. This class is suitable for students of all levels.
