Fine Arts

This course will focus on a variety of methods of drawing from observation. Working from observation to the abstract, students will engage a range of processes using traditional tools and materials in non-traditional ways. In this first 5-week course, perspective and a multitude of visual measuring techniques will be explored as strategies for seeing and drawing. Students will learn the value of process in drawing as a means to develop ideas, work collaboratively, and cultivate their individual creative voice while providing an atmosphere where they are supported and encouraged to take risks. This is the first part of a two-part series, but each section may also be taken as a stand alone class.
