Drawing Marathon – with Graham Nickson & Guests

Please note that Drawing Marathon – with Graham Nickson & Guests will be taught virtually this summer.  Faculty members have adapted lectures, critiques, presentations, and assignments to an online format and will maintain the high caliber of experiential learning and content that is the basis of the New York Studio School.  Though in a different form, your education and experience, will continue; we look forward very much to your participation.

Summer 2020

Course Description

In this online Marathon, students will learn the importance of drawing as the basis of 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 daily from 9am to 6pm, five days a week (excluding weekends). Evening critiques may be held during both weeks. Times of the critiques will be announced during the session. Attendance to each session is mandatory. Students are expected to work on assignments, photograph and upload images of their work throughout the duration of the course.
