Jeff DiCicco, Instructor
This course is designed to develop all levels of ability in freehand sketching. We will be meeting at one of our city’s most endearing and iconic landmarks – the Getty Villa. Students will have the freedom to choose what they wish to render, with an emphasis on architecture. It can be as simple as an architectural detail/element. The class will begin with a brief demonstration on how to choose a vantage point. We will also focus on composition to create a balanced piece, proportion to break down the image into sections, and contrast between lights and darks to create a successful work of art. This is a class with discoveries to be found at all levels. Enjoy learning in a relaxed format and a truly beautiful setting.
