Expand your drawing toolkit. The materials of drawing - the media used and the support they are drawn onto - are vital considerations in art-making. Each type of media can impart a different `feel’ to the work produced, and using better-quality art materials helps produce lasting works. Working with a model affords an excellent opportunity to investigate different media. In this 6-week course, we will use the human form as subject matter to explore a variety of wet and dry media. Ink, water-soluble graphite, and coloured chalk will be among the media investigated on a variety of supports: watercolour paper, and toned papers, among others. Course instruction will consist of demonstrations coupled with longer poses, to allow time for in-depth investigation of a different drawing material/paper combination each week.
Tuition: $275 | Model fee: $45 | Total: $320Notes: It is recommended that students have taken the Introduction to Life Drawing course or have equivalent and recent life drawing instruction.
Note: Materials are somewhat flexible. All of the materials listed can be found at Aboveground Art Supplies on McCaul St.
Any additional materials will be discussed in class.
*Only the HB pencil, broad and narrow brushes, cartridge paper and sepia ink are needed for class #1. Some savings may be had if two people are willing to share the cost of a pad of Watercolour paper (a whole pad won’t be necessary). This too can be discussed during the first class.
A few extra materials may be available if you have not had time to acquire things before the first class.
