One of the age old techniques for students to gain a foothold on their basic drawing skills, and learn advanced drawing procedures for finishes was copying the work of masters. Copying the great masters is a way to understand drawing procedure learned through the recreation of their images. If the drawing is thoughtfully reproduced, the student will gain a great deal of insight into how to solve problems in picture making when approaching their own work.    We will be working from a variety of Masters in this class
