The elements of drawing—observation, recording and pictorial organization—are fundamental to an artist’s visual education. Equally essential is the ability to convey intent and mood through subject selection, gesture and scale. Students build competency through core foundational elements, such as value, line, shape, proportion and composition. Through lectures, demonstrations and rigorous studio practice, students traverse the ground between establishing technical proficiency and creating a unique personal vision and visual language. They finish the course with improved skills and a body of work to potentially add to their portfolio. Individual guidance is provided to accommodate varying levels of ability, from beginning to advanced.
Students exhibit their work at Open Studios held 4–6 pm on the final day of class.
