This 6 week ONLINE course is designed to give students a better idea of the wide spectrum of the possibilities of contemporary drawing. What are artists doing with drawing today? Projects are geared towards expanding students’ notions of drawing, both technically and conceptually. Traditional and technique-driven approaches will be de-emphasized in order to find other sources for making works that are more self-directed. Using ink as a primary medium, there will be assignments to create drawing from a photograph, and layered images using transparencies. We will also engage in experiments with seriality and paper manipulation. Slide presentations and discussions will show students how other artists use drawing in challenging formats.
