What we're about
The McDowell Arts Center is hosting the How to Draw Well art classes every Saturday from 10:00 am to 6:00pm. Classes are broken up into 2 hour sessions (10:00 for adults/teens, 12:00 for under 12yrs, 2:00 for beginners over 12, 4:00 for color work.) We cover everything from the basic rules of drawing all the way to making cartoon strips and/or comic/manga story pages. You will learn all about : perspective, anatomy (especially faces, hands and how to make characters express emotions) light/shadows, "camera angles"/leading the eye/ page flow and foreshortening. If you've ever wanted to learn how to draw characters and/or make a comic book, comic strip or graphic novel this is the place to be! It's just $20 for 4 classes for Matthews residents, $25 for non- Matthews residents. That's just about 5 bucks per class! And we've got art supplies for you!
