Over the course of this semester I have truly learned how much work art is. I took this class because I love doodling and working with paper. Although doodling does not take much structure - it can really take any form you want. I feel like this was my biggest challenge this semester, learning the different drawing techniques. By doing the assignments every week, I gained a skill which contribute to my ability as an artist. Whether we used charcoal, pencil, or the smudge stick, all are necessary to producing our works for class. I had never worked with any other material other than pen - so this class was an experiment. It’s been such a wonderful experience learning the different techniques that go behind drawing.
