Intermediate Drawing: Looking, Marking and Inventing with Color (10weeks/Online)

Intermediate Drawing: Looking, Marking and Inventing with Color (10weeks/Online)

Instructor:  Trevor Young

September 21 - December 7 (ten weeks)

Mondays, 2 - 5 pm EST

 

Students in this class will learn to decipher space, light, drama and some color temperature 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,

 

• an introduction to color temperature and intensity through use a limited range of colored drawing materials,

 

• 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.

 

Once registered, you will receive an email containing information on how to join Zoom 24 hours before or the morning of the start of the class or workshop.
