Participants in this course will learn how to create sketches or models for paintings or murals and develop an understanding of the different types of models and ways to use them to create successful works of art. Usually executed on a small scale, a sketch is a quick drawing or painting without details. Its purpose is to create a proportional image of the subject to be painted on a larger scale later. It is produced in ink or pencil on cardboard or in acrylic paint on canvas. Using a sketch helps the painter achieve an integrated artwork as the sketched model can be modified more easily than the final work.
