    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class requires just basic skill of simply picking up a pencil and draw what you see! Sure there's the other fun mediums that requires you to get a little creative and expand upon your boundaries but overall, draw what you see, how you can, and experiment! This course encourages experimenting and expanding.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this class would simply be the fun and enjoyment of it, walking in, and getting straight to work. I've learned that not everything is entirely black and white. Not just drawing and learning colors, but I've learned about perspectives, how shadows work from still life drawings and more importantly, concept. Concept and thumbnail sketches are very important for what will be the result of the final product and I cannot stress this enough.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I'd advice any newcomers to simply be creative and have an open mind on what you see, and what you put on paper. Don't be too extravagant or over-the-top. Start out simple, or start out big, whichever way doesn't matter! If you don't know how to be creative, just look around you. Art is everywhere at any time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'm always a little iffy when it comes to foundation classes, but this teacher and the way he introduced us to different materials always had me on my toes. He makes you work for your grade, but also jokes around and has fun with you. He's more of a friend to you and makes sure you're​ always pushing your hardest when it comes to your work.

    Course highlights:

    Perspective was definitely something that stood out to me, as well as the figure drawing days that we had. It was a lot of fun, and the whole class had a lot of great moments. We felt more like a family there then students sharing a room.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely manage your time, because he uses large paper a lot.
