Drawing Marathon – VIRTUAL with Graham Nickson & Guests
Elusive Treasure: Chasing Form; Finding Color
In this Marathon, students learn the importance of drawing as the basis for understanding one’s experience of the world. Drawing is seen here as the most direct route to the examination of our perceptions. Unorthodox tools and exercises will be introduced to broaden the student’s drawing vocabulary. The class meets every day from 9am to 6pm, five days a week. Evening critiques will be held during both weeks. Times of the critiques will be announced during the session. Attendance to each session is mandatory for NYSS MFA students and encouraged for all participants. For this virtual Marathon, we will utilize Zoom as our virtual “studio” and Padlet as our virtual “studio walls”. All sessions are led in real time with ample interaction with the Instructor and Teaching Assistants.
