Drawing Marathon – IN-PERSON with Clintel Steed

Finding Structure through Process

Fall 2021

Course Description

In this Marathon, we will explore what it really means to have structure in a drawing and a painting. We will experience what it is like to work from a given structure and have to make decisions. We will then make our own setup with a focus of having very strong structure to work from direct observation. We will have to trust our decision-making. We will learn that thinking about structure can lead to invention and narrative. We will understand that, whilst thinking through structure, color, form and geometry all play a major roll. We will also make drawings at the Museum of Natural History and explore the work of Thomas Eakins to see how he was able to have both a solid structure and a solid narrative.
