Drawing Marathon: Drawing (as a Verb, as a Thing):  Now and Forever – James Siena

Course Description

The goal of this five-day intensive marathon is to establish drawing as an essential component in each student’s studio practice.  It will employ both traditional and non-traditional modes of drawing and seeing, and will include two critiques and at least one site visit, to the study room at the Metropolitan Museum.

Course Outline

Each day will begin with two hours of life drawing, focused on the mechanics of seeing and mark-making, dissociated from each student’s particular “brand”.  This will be followed by individual work, with specific visits from the instructor.  A model will be available for the remainder of each day if any student desires one.  There will also be class discussions on the distinction between preparatory, spontaneous and finished drawings, and critiques will take place on the second and fifth days of the marathon.
