About the Event
An essential course for beginning students emphasizing seeing and the principles of drawing from life: sensitive line quality, shape, value, gesture, mass, volume, visual measurement, negative space, the figure/ground relationship, and development of a personal handwriting. Students work from still life, interior space, the model and occasionally landscape. Each of the three academic terms has a slightly different focus (line, shape/value, and space/composition) making it possible to study the foundations slowly and in depth over the course of the year.
