Studying basic drawing techniques will give you the skills needed to develop accurate drawings while maintaining personal expression. Learning to measure, build forms from basic shapes, and a bit of gesture will give you a lifetime of drawing ability for any pursuit in defining a 3-D form on a 2-D surface. A strong drawing foundation will help you create convincing paintings in any media. You will need to practice, of course, to fully understand and incorporate the techniques into your artmaking. These skills help to prepare you for the Light and Shade in Watercolor class (LLART 338).
