Drawing

Drawing is considered the core skill foundation for all art and design. The study of drawing develops individual coordination between the hand, the eye, and the brain. A well articulated study of drawing creates for the student an essential visual vocabulary for the making of art as well as individual development of skills necessary for the generation of artistic expression. For many working artists, drawing is a lifetime study.
