Doug Dalton, long time area art educator, will teach a Beginning Drawing 1 class at Western Oklahoma State College this fall beginning on Wednesday, Aug. 13. The class will meet for 16 weeks from 11 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The class will concentrate drawing fundamentals, understanding materials, composition and exploring one’s own drawing skills. The main concentration will be in the areas of still-life and landscape drawings using mainly pencil and ink.
For beginning art students and those who are serious about learning art, drawing represents the place to begin to develop their skills. Those skills will find use in virtually every area of art. Drawing skills will be useful with painting, printmaking, metal point and sculpture, to name a few.
Drawing 1 will be useful for anyone who has an interest in learning to do some kind of art for a hobby or a career. Whatever one’s aspirations with art, it can begin with this class. Students considering this class should be prepared to work at developing the skills needed for drawing.
In addition to Drawing 1, courses in Art Appreciation and Digital Photography have also been re-introduced to the Western Fall 2014 class schedule. Visit wosc.edu/courseschedule to see the dates and times of the courses and wosc.edu/enroll to begin the enrollment process.
