Exploratory Drawing

Let loose and learn some new skills and drawing techniques

while experimenting with a variety of methods for creating

drawings. We will build compositional skills and explore

primarily abstraction and formalism as a means for

personal expression and dynamic imagery. We will use

primarily graphite, charcoal, and paper collage, with the

option of bringing in other materials. You will gain greater

understanding of art fundamentals such as value, color,

space, and form, and their application within your artwork.

While therewill be lessons and demonstrations incorporated,

this class focuses primarily on play and experimentation to

generate ideas and imagery. Please check the DAC website

for supply list.

Real Life Drawing

Students will draw frommodels dressed in everyday clothes,

both sitting still and performing ordinary tasks in order

to better understand the world around them and gain

confidence in drawing and observing a world in motion. Dry

media will be used including pencil, charcoal, pastel, and

conte crayon. Wet media will be introduced including ink,

watercolor, and gouache. Students are welcome to draw in

sketchbooks but drawing on larger sheets of paper will be

encouraged. Please check the DAC website for supply list.

Reportage

Students will draw on location and observe people in real

situations in an encouraging, supportive environment.

Drawing in public is a tradition that goes back centuries and

is a useful tool for artists who wish to bring more life to their

work. It helps build confidence and strengthens social skills.

When we draw in public we are both observers and observed.

Intermediate and Advanced Life Drawing

This is an intermediate and advanced life drawing course

designed for thosewho already have had a life drawing course

previously or other extensive drawing experience. The class

will assume prior experience and understanding of gesture

and contour drawing, extended gesture, tonal modeling,

and proportion. We will review briefly and then build on

these techniques to develop a range of visual and rendering

skills. With this foundation we’ll work on anatomical studies,

special detail and form studies, and enhanced compositional

strategies. We’ll develop these skills while exploring your

own personal and expressive visual language. Techniques

will focus primarily on using charcoal, Conté crayons, and ink

while opening up the end of the course to other water based

and drawing media. Regular class critiques will mark your

progression and we’ll discuss some of the ways the figure can

carry meaning whether through expression, technique, or

scale. We will look at historical and contemporary works and

techniques by a range of artists for both understanding and

inspiration. Leonardo da Vince said `The supreme misfortune

is when theory outstrips performance’ so all of these

elements will build progressively with the development of

your rendering skills as the primary focus. Please check the

DAC website for supply list. Students under eighteen must

provide a signed permission letter from a parent or guardian.
