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