Drawing Master Classes allow participants to study and create alongside our MFA and Certificate candidates. Our rigorous program, taught by a small group of dedicated professional sculptors, provides an opportunity to bring together process, perception, and critical dialogue. Each student gains a conviction for drawing and a foundation from which their work can evolve throughout a lifetime.

Drawing Master Class – VIRTUAL: Image-Making in Drawing
with Lourdes Bernard

Tuesday, 9am – 1pm ET
September 20 – December 13, 2022

Cost: $925

This class will be taught virtually using Zoom and Padlet. This drawing course will explore the process of image making to communicate ideas, feelings, and content about your unique perceptual experience of the figure and of perceptual space. This course will focus on using drawing as a tool of visual exploration and how drawing has historically been a vehicle for communication. The course will provide the student with specific media experience. Using collage, sumi-ink, graphite, and various drawing materials we will explore the relationship between the animating trait of an image and how the materials employed contribute to the image’s aesthetic force. Referencing historical and contemporary examples we will study images to understand the role of content in image making and its impact on the viewer. In the outside assignments students are expected to explore their own sensibility, the surrounding environment and pictorial interests by developing a rigorous sketchbook practice. In class we will work at different scales and at different paces and emphasize the experiential nature of drawing.
