Figure Drawing 3
Starting April 5, 2021
Drawing Materials as Tools of Expression
In this 10 week class the focus will be on our drawing tools as a means of furthering the expressive quality of our drawings. Each lesson will introduce new materials that we will be using.
The procedure will follow a basic pattern of 1st week lecture and demonstrations of the materials with a following critique of the drawings submitted. The 2nd week will be a follow up on the critics with further demonstrations. There will be five, two week lesson topics for a total of 10 weeks of instruction.
There will be a wide range of materials used including: ink, pen, wash, water soluble pencils, toned paper with white chalk, prepared paper, soft charcoal as well as other materials as the class develops.
I feel it is important for the students to experience alternative materials beyond the few standard pencils and paper they habitually use, in order to discover possibly other means that are more suited to their natural inclinations. New materials offer an expanded potential for personal expression.
