Drawing 102

Libby Watson

January 23 – February 27 (6 weeks)
Mondays, 1 – 3:30 pm

Students who have taken Drawing 101 will continue their drawing journey. This class will focus more on composition and drawing what you see rather than drawing from a photograph. Students will continue to learn and utilize the formal language of art and will be expected to learn the use of new tools in this class. Students will become familiar with the eight elements of composition and expected to interpret these elements in class practice. Students will learn through class the fundamental differences between, forms shapes and volumes as they pertain to drawing. Students will learn about negative space, geometric vs. organic form and how it affects the design of a drawing. The last three classes will include a lecture about art history centered around several specific Renaissance artists that will run during the drawing time.
