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.
