Expressive Drawing

This course is for students with some experience. Expressive drawing is a mode of discovery and creativity; working from observation through to experiment and imagination.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is offered as an on-site or an online class. Please check the details when booking the day / time of the class.

What The Course is About:

Each session may typically include a presentation or demonstration, followed by individual tutorials, as well as some group discussions. The course will consist of themed blocks of sessions, with guided workshops through different media and techniques to explore aspects of contemporary drawing. The initial emphasis will also be on learning to look, reflecting on how we see and experience the world and the use of the drawn mark to record that experience. You will work from set-ups in the studio, from trips to galleries and museums, and from trips to sites such as the river, parks, urban spaces and interiors. There will be an emphasis on contextual studies, with frequent presentations on contemporary drawing practices and underlying philosophies.

Materials Required:

Most of the materials below are available cheaply in the shop at Putney School of Art. The following list of basic materials will get you started: A pad of good quality A2 sized cartridge paper - these sheets can be divided into smaller pieces. Windsor and Newton drawing ink: black, deep red, ultramarine and canary yellow. Quink ink in black or blue-black. Ballpoint pens in black, blue and red. Pencils โ€“ 2B, 4B, 6B Willow charcoal, mixed widths Conte sticks (not pencils) in white, black and sanguine (brown red) Soft graphite stick โ€“ 6B or 4B An eraser โ€“ plastic is better than a putty rubber Sharpener A craft knife and scissors Masking tape A can of fixative An apron PVA glue and / or a glue stick.

Previous Experience:

This course is for students with some experience and an interest in trying different processes and materials.

End of course:

This class offers students with some previous experience the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and approaches to the use of different traditional and non-traditional drawing media. The course will guide students through the practice and principles of essential formal drawing qualities: line, tone, texture, composition and colour. Sessions working from observation will also move to supporting students in developing an individual voice, to develop work from research, experiment and imagination. Contemporary drawing practice pushes at the boundaries of what drawing is. Some sessions will involve paint, printing, collage, stitch and more.
