Drawing with Your Mind’s Eye
This is a studio drawing class for beginners to advanced artists. The focus of this course will be on drawing from ideas, more so than representational drawing. Using a variety of media from pencil, to sumi ink, to chalk, to charcoal, we will explore various techniques to express different subject matter from dreams, to timelines, to prayers and more. Students will learn to create visual metaphors for thoughts and ideas with an emphasis on composition. We will look how contemporary artists continue to use drawing as a way to express current philosophical trends.
