Drawing Foundations


Thursdays, October 3, 10, 17, 24, & 31    6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Instructor: Chris Jugo

Any skill level, youth, adult

You picked up some fresh new pencils and a new sketchbook, and even treated yourself to that ‘artist-quality’ eraser. Now what? Learn to draw! In this series of classes you will gain the skills and confidence to start your artistic journey. A dot on a page becomes alive when it becomes a line. Then the line becomes a shape that creates elegant forms to tell your story or perspective. We will give you the foundational elements and principals to bring an idea to life. Topics include: drawing what you see; exploratory mark making/sketching techniques; perspective; composition and lighting; tonal values; and colour theory.

About the Instructor:  Born and raised in Edmonton, Chris Jugo is a graduate from MacEwan University’s Design Studies program majoring in Illustration and a practicing artist and fulltime graphic designer. Chris applies his creative talent in a diverse range from intricate anime style illustrations, logo and branding concept design and various visual communications. His creative passion is expressed through an eclectic collection of shape, form, colour and character, assembling them in a playful way. Chris’s mission is to share and impart to others his joy and love of making art to those who need the joy and love of art the most.
