Gesturing in the Park (6weeks/Outdoors)

Instructor: Diane Wilson

Saturdays, 2 - 5 pm EST

September 19 - October 24 (6 weeks)

Raindate: October 31

 

This outdoor drawing class will meet in various park locations (starting with Peirce Mill) in DC and close-in surroundings, and will find gesture, rhythm and movement in trees, plants, rocks, and the occasional model.

Students may work in a variety of drawing materials including graphite, charcoal, conte, or pen and should use a high quality sketchbook as large as they can manage. Easels are not necessary but a light weight folding stool might be useful for some. Locations will be sent to registered students. Masks are required.

 

Objectives will be:

• to find the gesture in everything seen

• to find rhythms in the trees and spaces between

• to find value patterns and visual movement

• to understand deep and shallow space

 

Who is this class for: This class is for students of all levels who would like to explore the possibilities of drawing in natural settings. Previous drawing experience is helpful but not necessary.
