Graphite Two Ways, Part II: Atmospheric Drawing Powered Graphite (5weeks/Online)
Graphite Two Ways, Part II: Atmospheric Graphite with Powered Graphite
Instructor: Erin Raedeke
March 3 - 31 (5-weeks)
Wednesdays, 2-5 pm EST
Graphite is a wonderfully flexible medium that has the potential to be used in many ways. Marks can be linear, painterly, sharp, atmospheric, dark, light, layered, minimal, and even dry or wet. These two ½ classes, taught by two different instructors, will show very different ways of using the medium. They can be taken individually or consecutively as a pair.
Using the beautiful medium of powdered graphite, both dry and mixed with a liquid can lead to painterly, atmospheric, and very ethereal drawings. In this class, form will be ‘teased’ out of the atmospheric qualities of the medium in a subtractive way – by toning the paper and removing the graphite with an eraser – rather than marks that are built additively. With this way of working, a strong sense of mood and light finding form can be achieved.
This course is suitable for all levels.
