• Introduction-Intermediate
  • Drawing

Examine the “building blocks” of the complex world around you. Intended for novice-but-committed or intermediate-level students, this 8-week course is more analytical than expressive in its approach. The focus is on rendering a convincing depiction of three-dimensional forms and spaces on a flat surface. Lectures, demonstrations, and drawing exercises will investigate basic principles of perspective (e.g., constructing cylinders and boxes, and relating forms to a common vanishing point or points). Drawings will involve invented perspective constructions as well as observational drawing. Subject matter will be simple at the start and move on to more complex challenges, from still life through to the human body, with an eye to helping students convey structure and volume. Drawings will be predominantly linear. Relevant art history will also be introduced.

Spring 2020:

10 Weeks:  Base Tuition: $422 + Material Fee: $35 = Total: $457

Notes: It is recommended that students have taken an Introduction to Drawing course, or have some drawing experience.
