Beginning Drawing in Charcoal with Yuki Horikawa
January 19 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$120 – $140
January 12-February 2 | (4 Saturdays) | 1:00pm-4:00 pm
These classes will help intermediate/advanced students develop the fundamental skills and foundational understanding in order to create their own portraits. Mr. Horikawa will emphasize basic charcoal drawing skills, fundamental study of human anatomy, portrait composition, and understanding light direction as the essential elements of a portrait. A model will keep the same pose for a month, allowing students enough time for an in depth study of the human figure. This class will be a great opportunity for other artists to improve their skills, make friends, and help contribute to the Loveland art community. Mr. Horikawa likes to take art seriously but not so seriously that there isn’t always an opportunity for everyone involved to have fun.
About the Instructor:
Mr. Horikawa has developed his own technique with pastel where many layers of fine lines of color are layered to create all of the elements of a portrait from life like skin tones, to human hair and clothing, as well as the soft and specific surfaces of furniture and interiors. While he is willing to teach his technique, he also believes that it is important for students to discover their own method with pastel as each artist explores and engages with the medium
