Tantalising Textures with Kate Jenvey: Light and Shade

For beginners
Ages 14+

Students will discuss the effect of light on an object and how it defines form. They will evaluate the resulting light and shadow areas and relate this to a value scale. Along with value or tone, Kate will also discuss the importance of edges in rendering drawings to look realistic, while building knowledge of pencil application and techniques.

These elements are the foundation to drawing any subject matter whether it be animals, portraits, still life or landscapes. Participants will then use these elements to draw a subject from nature in a realistic style.
