An introductory online drawing course with a focus on working from old and contemporary master drawings and potentially photographs to create unique drawing composition. Creating a strong composition, a sense of light/dark, an illusion of depth and form that’s in the round will be among our goals. Special attention will be given to mark making including weight of mark, and employing techniques such as hatch marks and pointillism to expand visual vocabulary. Collage will be used as a reference point as well as a unique format for art itself. Beginners and advanced students alike are encouraged to join. Media will include charcoal, graphite, pen, ink and color washes. Materials included.
The class will take place outside with social distancing in effect and weather permitting (rain dates will happen online).
You may take the first two week project for the class as a trial. A discount for the whole class is available to all MAxT members.
