Studio 艺术: Drawing from Observation
SESSION II: JULY 14 - 27, 2024
Age: Rising 7th Graders and Older
This instructive and scaffolded course will introduce students to the fundamentals of observational drawing. Using still life, 内部空间, landscape and the figure, students will learn how to create the illusion of depth, manipulate perspective, and develop value contrast and volume through the use of graphite, 木炭, 粉彩和墨水. 学生 will be taught techniques such as blind contour, construction drawing, hatching and cross-hatching, and expressive mark making. The newly renovated Cullman 艺术 Center and idyllic setting of our campus will inspire students to assemble a strong portfolio of dynamic drawings. This foundational course will culminate in a presentation of student work and a digital portfolio suitable for submission to secondary school programs. Easels and drawing materials will be provided. No prior drawing experience is necessary.
