Session I Morning: Drawing

$75

with Jennifer Linskey

Calendar Jun 16, 2021 at 9 am, runs for 3 weeks

In this drawing course, we will work from observation as we explore a combination of organic and geometric forms. The still-life set up will give you practice with measuring, looking at angles, value, object placement, and challenge you to compose in different ways. We’ll look at visual pathways through our image, and seek to determine how much is “enough” information to convey our idea convincingly. When does it make sense to simplify? When does it make sense to really describe? After a couple of quick thumbnails, our goal will be an extended drawing where you can really push through your piece. All levels are welcome and encouraged. Each week will be a different still life, so you are welcome to sign up for both sessions. Covid 19 safety protocols will follow state and school district recommendations for in-person events.
