Picasso, Bull (Plates I - IX), 1945, Etchings
CLASS DESCRIPTION Drawing & Expressive Design In this class you continue to build your drawing skills and take them to the next level while you develop your expressive voice. You work with exercises that build your visual vocabulary, strengthen creativity, sharpen accuracy, and hone composition and technique. Focus topics include drawing outside views from inside, drawing complex and simple household objects, drawing shiny objects, drawing from photographs, using color in your drawings, and generating abstract drawing.
In addition, the class includes an introduction to figure drawing that simplifies the complexity of the human form. Work from a professional art model on one of the days and find out how much you already know about drawing people.We'll also look at the clothed figure, using each other as compositional elements within the context of the interior. Concepts and tools encompass line, gesture, proportion, relationships, shape, planes, volume, light and shadow, anatomy, design, space and composition. You begin to identify what ideas and artists interest you and make an extended series of studies. Analyze reproductions for design and composition and make your own versions of these master works. Along the way, you'll learn to keep a sketchbook and develop your own drawing practice. The class includes an art history conversation relating to each lesson, lots of demonstrations and individual attention.
