Elements of Art – Line

with Kristen O’Neill

Saturday, July 20

1 – 4 pm

Part of the new series of fundamental art classes: Elements of Art
Lines! What starts as a simple mark becomes the basis of art.
• How does a line move through an artwork, lead the eye, and interact? Is it bold or passive? Precise or irregular? What type of line is it?
• Using art history, we will explore powerful examples of lines in art.
• We will create a sample project to keep as a reference.
• Plus, we will try out different approaches to drawing. A great class for the beginner, the art appreciator, and the more advance student who is looking to have a traditional fundamentals education.
