A weekend-long workshop of virtually non-stop drawing: the purpose is to not only loosen up, but also to approach drawing fearlessly. We will work with multiple models and props as well as from imagination. Students will work quickly, drawing with various media. Restating and reworking of drawings will be encouraged to create complex works. Ink, paint and dry mediums will be used to blur the distinctions between painting and drawing. The class will investigate elements of portraiture, figure study, narrative drawing, still life and abstraction. This workshop is a drawing intensive: students will be expected to work (very) hard and will gain a keener understanding of the drawing process. NOTE: Open to intermediate to advanced participants who feel comfortable further developing their own hand and line. Only odor-free, nontoxic materials may be used; solvent and alcohol-based drawing markers are prohibited.
