DRAWING

Drawing for the Absolute Beginner (DRWG120-36)

Do you want to learn to draw but don't know how to get started? This is an ideal course for people with little or no experience in drawing. The course involves drawing from direct observation with an emphasis on the line quality, value, shading, negative space and perspective. Students will create texture in their drawings as they explore the aesthetics of mark making. The skills necessary to make a good drawing are developed through basic materials such as pencils and charcoal. Source material will include still life arrangements, working from nature, a live model and photographs. This course will also include a couple of field trips so that the students can experience drawing on location. By the end of twelve weeks you will have the confidence to sit down in front of any subject and start to draw. Suitable for beginners.

Drawing the Subconcious (DRWG251-36)

In this course students will go deeper in their drawing practice by connecting to their subconscious. Students explore what happens when they try to let go of conscious thinking and work more intuitively in their art practice. During each class, students will practice automatic drawing (similar to what the Surrealists were doing in the 1920s), free form drawing and 'no editing' exercises, as well as create ink blots and use doodling as starting points for picture making. The course will also include meditation exercises and drawing inspired from dreams. Drawing materials and process will focus on mixed media and collage. By doing this work, students will explore what lies below the surface in their subconscious while finding new images and techniques for their art practice. This class is ideal for those who love to draw and are curious to see what new images might come up during these explorations. Suitable for beginners.
