« back to classes page
The beauty of drawing is in it’s immediacy, freshness and general simplicity.
When combined with the democracy and infinite application of abstraction you have a working method that can be everything and nothing, or something in-between, depending on the perspective.
Utilizing various exercises that rely on process, or memory/experience, or art history, or nature,
combined or singular, the student will explore the potential of works on paper.
Line,form, color/value and surface will be the initial starting point to the creation of compositional strategies.
Informal critiques and discussions about contemporary art will be a consistent component of the class.
Everyone is welcome to this class as long as curiosity and a will to make is present. Be a magician and make something from nothing.
