Virtual Drawing Marathon – with Graham Nickson & Guests

Fall 2020

“You need two lifetimes, one to understand the language and one to use it.” – Pierre Bonnard

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 Sunday). 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.
