Drawing Marathon – IN-PERSON with Ed Praybe

Poetry of the Everyday

Fall 2021

Course Full – please email Registrar Amber Duntley aduntley@nyss.org to join the waitlist.

Course Description

This drawing course will center on translating the commonplace into something uniquely profound. The sources for imagery will come from still life, interior spaces, the surrounding cityscape and art historical works. Working from a combination of strict direct observation and synthetic approaches students will discover the surprises locked within everyday objects and scenes. Daily drawing exercises will address the roles that time and change, shape, structure, value, emphasis and measurement/proportion play on the way we interpret the world around us. Individual approaches to the course topics will be the focus of a final project during the second week. One on one feedback and critiques will be given by the instructor daily with informal group critiques during the working session throughout both weeks. The final day will be devoted to an in-depth group critique. A gallery or museum visit as well as the utilization of spaces outside the studio may be part of this course and will be announced ahead of time.
