Classical drawing spotlighted in June at Burien Arts Gallery

So you think you can draw!?!?

Check out “Classical Drawing - The Art of the Atelier,” the June Show at the Burien Arts Gallery, 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien.

Drawings by the students and graduates of the Aristides Atelier at Gage Academy in Seattle are presented to illustrate how drawing provides the foundation for quality works of art.

Students come into the Atelier with what they think are the basics, many having Bachelor of Fine Arts or Master of Fine Arts degrees. They may have experience in the Gaming and Design industries. They find there is much more to learn!

Learning to draw correctly involves a thorough understanding of the use of pattern, proportion, value, line, form and volume.

By mastering these drawing skills, the artist is able to provide the viewer with an image that will convince them they are looking at a three-dimensional scene on a two-dimensional surface. Painting brings color to art, but a clear, well-composed drawing provides the base from which the magic develops!

Please join us at the show opening during the B-Town Beat Art Walk Thursday, June 5th, 2014 at the Burien Arts Gallery, 826 SW 152nd St.

Also, stop by the Gallery during the month of June (Wednesday - Sunday), to see these outstanding drawings.
