Level Beginner (For artists with little/no experience or who wish to expand their skills)
Duration8 weeks
Teacher Tannis Trydal, Cindy Wider
Credits Shading: 7

In this seven week course you are introduced to the theory of light and shade. Through a series of drawing exercises you will refine your ability to compare different levels of light and shade using the smooth shading technique. Outline drawings are provided enabling you to concentrate purely on the skill of shading realistic three-dimensional images on a flat page. The course contains a delicate blend of traditional methods combined with contemporary knowledge.

This course requires a minimum of four to six hours study per week. Absolute beginners can enrole in this course, although some prior knowledge of the basics might be helpful.
