Experimental Drawing (10weeks/Online)

Experimental Drawing (10weeks/Online)

Instructor: Joren Lindholm

January 30-April 3

Saturdays, 2-5 pm EST

 

What do we really see? How do we use materials? This class will explore and expand the boundaries of traditional approaches to drawing media and concepts. Students will discover that the more deeply they look at the spaces and objects around them, the more unexpected and surprising they become. Close observation reveals new visual discoveries, and a transformation in seeing occurs. Using drawing materials and paper at hand, but in ways that may be new to them, students will expand their basic observational skills and individual vocabularies into more personal ways of drawing. Risk-taking and fearlessness will be encouraged, leading to invention. Elements and principles of design will be employed more expansively to build drawings that push to the next level. Working from still life, interior/exterior space, the figure, as well as memory or imagination, students increase their understanding of the basic principles of drawing three-dimensional form in space.  Principles that will be covered include:

 

•weight, 

•balance, 

• rhythm, 

•movement, 

•contrast,

• and unity.  

 

Who is this class for: This class is best for those with good basic drawing skills and an understanding of visual elements who want to deepen their skills, broaden their boundaries, and begin to move towards a more personal voice. 

 

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