About This Class

In this class we'll explore light and shadow from a more conceptual standpoint and understanding rather than just from pure observation. My goal is for students to look at light, shadows and shading in drawing a little more analytically more than they may be used to. This class is will be heavy on concept and looking at what we're observing from a more practical way rather than trusting everything we see. I've labeled this class as 'intermediate' because of the conceptual nature of it, but I would encourage even beginners to take a look as they get more comfortable with shading and the process of modeling form.
