FALL 2016 - SCHOOL-YEAR YOUNG ARTIST PROGRAM
DRAWING FROM OBSERVATION
6 sessions >> Saturdays, October 1–November 5
11 am–2 pm | Studio 14 | $275
This course will cover basic techniques, materials, theory, vocabulary, and overall practice of observational drawing. We will investigate composition, spatial relationships, and the importance of light as it relates to the illusion of three-dimensional space. You will complete several drawings from life, including still life’s, self-portraits, and more. These drawings will be executed using a variety of traditional drawing materials such as charcoal, pastel, conté, and pencil. With these materials, you will develop an understanding of technical variety in mark-making using perspective, proportion, scale, volume, texture, contrast, value, line, and shading.
Tom Colcord was born on May 15, 1990 in Indianapolis Indiana. After completing his BFA in Painting from Indiana University Bloomington he studied abroad in Florence Italy. Inspired by works from the old masters he set out to become a full time artist and moved to San Francisco where he is currently pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts at the San Francisco Art Institute. Tom considers his art practice primarily related to painting but heavily reliant on drawing, collage, sculpture, and digital art as well.
