Core Lab 1: Painting & Drawing
P. Nathan Bond
Through exercises in drawing, painting, collage and digital imaging, students will gain confidence in producing images for narrative purposes. Drawing from life, memory, imagination and other reference sources will be explored. A wide range of material and methods will be explored: ink, pencil, charcoal, watercolor and paint. An emphasis will be placed on the tradition of handmade drawing and painting and its expressive possibilities. Various techniques for spatial representation will be considered. The instructor will address specific drawing problems that arise in the core studio projects. Students will be encouraged to find a unique graphic personality and "voice."
