This is a six-hour drawing/painting class. Drawing and painting from models is one component of exercises that explore working from the imagination and working from life, both of which expand a students means of expression. The class concentrates on composition, spatial representation and the figure. Attention is given to contemporary and historical precedents. Students will explore drawing as a tool for diagramming ideas as well as an using mark making to develop style and convey a particular point of view. The pairing of painting with drawing is a natural development from the work done in the sophomore year.
