Intermediate Drawing: Making Marks through Observing and Inventing

Instructor: Trevor Young

Mondays, 2-5pm

 

Students in this class will learn to decipher space, light and drama through mark making as a process of looking and invention. Skills and concepts to be developed include:

  • Understanding space using geometry and quickly calculated measurements,

  • the building of gradient layers and rich tonality through a range of graphite pencils and other materials,

  • the use of smartphone technology as a complement to traditional materials for interpreting value and line,

  • and some use of free drawing and mark making exercises to encourage the joy in being wild.

 

Understanding drawing as a practice is like whistling – it reflects mental state and flexibility. And fostering a flexible drawing process means putting judgment aside, just like we disregard judgment of our song as we whistle it.

 

Who is this class for:  This class is for those with some previous drawing classes and understanding of visual elements who want to deepen their perceptual skills and begin to move toward a more personal, adventurous voice.
