DRAWING: MARK-MAKING + DESIGN

Mastery of freehand drawing takes practice. Drawing will lead to fluency; a wonderful springboard for future disciplines in the creative field. In addition to learning freehand drawing skills, time will be spent on the formation of concepts as they relate to the design/drawing process – why we draw, what we draw and how we draw, with the power of mark- making, working with different mediums, working in series in six creative sessions.

All levels welcome. October 14 – November 18, 2019
Monday Evenings 5PM – 7:30PM

ONLINE CLASS: THE BEAUTY OF COMPOSITION

Composition is not a set of rules we must follow, but an elegant “language” in which to communicate. Composition is my “best friend” that sits beside me through all my work. Rather than restrict freedom, compositional principles can give you more confidence, making for freer, stronger work.

ONLINE CLASS: TRANSLATING LANDSCAPE

The landscape is a gentle way of exploring the elements that are integral to making meaningful work: line, value, color, shape, edges, composition. In this 6-lesson class, we will use our study of landscape to work at finding our unique mark, learning and reinforcing design concepts, drawing with intent, and simplifying.
