Suitable whether you love to draw from the natural world or the imagination, instruction will provide an immersion in the discipline of drawing. Through a series of exploratory exercises, learn graphite and ink drawing techniques, wash applications, and dry pigment painting to produce rich black and white images on a variety of supports. Analyses of light and shadow and resulting contrasts of value will be central to achieving intriguing images. Historical and contemporary references will be introduced for inspiration and critique. A variety of subjects will be studied, but you will be encouraged to work from the imagination and to abstract chosen subject matter. The intent is not only to develop technical skills but to foster risk-taking and build confidence to use drawing as an integral part of everyday life.
