Remember those children's coloring books with their beautiful, even, unbroken lines that we tried so hard not to mess up with our crayons? Those lines so strongly defined drawing on a subconscious level that drawing without an outline is the first hurdle that will be addressed in this course. We will explore drawing through a variety of mediums, including pencil, charcoal, pastel, sumi ink and brush, scratchboard and acrylics. Working exclusively from the live nude, students will become familiar with the principles of drawing such as line, tone, mass, light, composition, positive/negative space, scale, linear perspective, atmospheric perspective and analytical observation. We will do all of this in a supportive atmosphere with an emphasis on individual goals and levels of experience. Discussion of student work will be an ongoing group activity. The goal is for each student to complete the course with a newfound excitement about drawing and a sense of direction in the development of his or her drawings for the future. NOTE: Please bring a newsprint pad (18x24") and compressed charcoal to the first session.
