Drawing is so much more than a line on a page and observational drawing is at the core of the drawing experience. In this drawing intensive you will work with Foundation Studies Chair, Lynda Monick-Isenberg, to develop and refine your perceptual drawing skills. Working from still life in the drawing studio, you will explore methods of seeing and translating what is seen using graphite, charcoal, and ink. Through group discussions and examination of master and contemporary artists' work you will uncover traditional and non-traditional drawing concepts to apply to your own work. This course is recommended for students who are building a portfolio for college admission, as well as those interested in strengthening observational drawing skills.
