In this course, participants will engage in the art of “Noticing,” expanding on the world around them and capturing it through art. Applying techniques such as perspective, shading, and color theory, participants will have the opportunity to work from reference imagery as well as from life objects, capturing the beauty of the world around them while developing their artistic skills.
