We return with more drawing lessons from our local artist, Cindy Conley! For those who don’t know, Cindy has won numerous awards for her drawings including first place at the 2-day Christian Concert & Art Festival called “Purple Door” that used to be held at Ski Roundtop, where she was competing against other artists, in multiple medias, from all over North America and Canada. She has recently begun teaching art classes for the Carlisle Parks & Rec.

This 3-lesson class will be an in-depth study of shading and composition: using shading to create a certain effect in features of the subject and in the correct direction to create a realistic lighting presence.

Mrs. Conley is planning to do 2 or 3 examples/practical application-type pieces throughout the class in practice exercises. Starting out with a box – showing not only the shaded ‘sides’, but also the portion of the shaded side that is closer to or further from the light source and how to accomplish that visually. Then the students will move on to a rounded object and finally they will combine the two previous exercises into a joint piece comprised of the shaded ‘areas’ they’ve gone over and practiced … think of it as a mini-still-life of sorts.

For best results, Mrs. Conley recommends sketch paper: “The main thing with the paper is the texture. For shading you want paper that has a ‘bit of a bite to it’ as opposed to ‘smooth’/computer paper.” You may also wish to purchase a pencil drawing kit or get at least a charcoal or graphite pencil: “A standard pencil will do the drawing but it will not provide the proper rubbing and spreading needed to properly shade,” and an eraser “any good one will do but a kneaded eraser works best.”
