Milton Arts Guild, 310 Walnut St., Milton, will offer a Foundations of Drawing workshop with Joe Terrone from 1 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 14, and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16, with a 30-minute lunch break.
Geared to all those who want to learn to draw, this workshop concentrates on strong foundations through teaching the basics while expanding knowledge participants already possess. Many artists were thrown into their creative lives without the drawing skills needed to make strong images, and this class will provide that solid footing.
Students will concentrate on seeing, and transferring images to paper using positive and negative space, sighting, measuring and value judgment. They will explore line and form through contour drawing and shading, and create strong compositions with thumbnail sketches. They will work on leading the eye, balance and focal points, plus enhancing drawings using edges, contrast and atmospheric perspective.

Terrone finds a way to increase students’ abilities to enjoy and achieve skill in their drawings and artwork.
