Class Description

In this three-day workshop, students will learn necessary drawing techniques for accurately capturing what they see, as well as experience the joy and expressive potential of pictorial composition. The expressive power of all elements involved in composition, such as the proportion of the paper, negative spaces, and size and placement of the objects will be discussed. During the first day, students will learn tools necessary to capture what they see accurately on paper, such as blocking and point method. During the second class, students will learn about composition and use the learned techniques creatively in order to follow a chosen visual idea or to express a particular feeling. The choices in composition are endless. On the final day, students will create an expressive linear still-life drawing.
