Broaden your life drawing expression through colour. Working with coloured drawing media opens up worlds of exploration. It can also be a very valuable companion to painting, as a rapid and spontaneous way to explore colour possibilities. In this ONLINE course you will be working with models on Zoom, supplemented by instructor demos and brief lectures. We'll use a few coloured drawing media (predominately 'dry' pastels).
Explore the expressive and psychological potential of working with a variety of different colour schemes. The class will start with a monochrome palette, moving into analogous colour and limited palettes, as well as exploring unconventional colour choices. We will also allow time to work with more naturalistic colour choices.
(This course makes an excellent complement to Figure Drawing 2: Drawing Better Bodies. It is intended for any students with prior life drawing experience. It is recommended that students have taken the Introduction to Life Drawing course or have equivalent and recent life drawing instruction.)

*All of these sets are in the $15 - $30 range.
Generally, the more costly the material, the better quality the pigment is, and the richer the colour. 'Firm' and 'semi-hard' pastel sticks are thinner, allow for more control, and take longer to build up. 'Soft pastels' are creamier in handling, apply quickly but go blunt very rapidly. Steer clear of sets specifically called 'chalk pastels' these tend to have a lot more cheap filler. 'Generals' brand colour media are not recommended as they tend to be too hard. Later in the course, other papers to be bought will be discussed (under $20 total).
