Strong composition is the foundation of this class along with line, contour, intuitive and memory drawing.  This is an excellent introduction to explore the power and magic of drawing.  For those with more experience this class will give you new perspectives on your current work.   It will be like a creative meditation resulting in new and exciting ways of approaching your own distinct style.
