In the first weeks of this course we will introduce the fundamentals of drawing with a number of warm up exercises, exploration of materials ( pencil, pen & ink & pastels) and a comprehensive drawing vocabulary. investigation into value scale & color. Using these practical exercises, we will have still life assignment to utilize what we have learnt. Followed by feedback, & discussion. Demo in composition, negative space & proportion, with a students assignment following this. We will explore abstraction in drawing versus traditional realism, and with that explore personal style.
The last few weeks of the course, there will be open studio & discovery and analysis of artists’s works (past & present) to inspire students own work. The course will end with an inspiring final drawing assignment & student critique.
