Description

INTERMEDIATE FIGURE DRAWING
Ignacio Rojas

8 sessions >> Saturdays, February 3–March 24
10am–1pm, Studio 13, $385
Prerequisite: Introduction to Drawing or similar experience.

Using your basic drawing vocabulary, materials, and techniques as a foundation, you will begin to investigate more conceptual aspects of drawing—focusing on personal artistic expression using the figure as subject. Time will be spent at the beginning of the course with traditional observational drawings of the figure, and then move towards experimentation and expressive control.

Color will be introduced both formally and expressively. You will be encouraged to approach drawing in a variety of non-traditional ways including alternative mark-making and in different supports.

In addition, you will be given a series of theoretical “problems” to solve and/or incorporate into each assignment as a guide to discovering multiple perspectives in drawing. Class projects and critiques will be focused on providing a continuation of observational and technical figure drawing skills, an introduction of new ideas and experimentation, and insight into discovering one’s own artistic voice
