Course Full. Please email Registrar Stephanie Bowman, sbowman@nyss.org, to join the join waitlist. 

Course Description

 “What you want is the experience of making something that you haven’t seen before.” – Philip Guston

The purpose of this Drawing course is to draw from nature, study it, recreate it, and then regard it in a new light. Each week the students will create two- and three-dimensional space ‘simultaneously’ within their drawings by practicing a range of formal techniques. We will learn how to use the experience of drawing to grow as artists. We will look at relevant artwork as a guide through each lesson, with a focus on Renaissance inspired figuration and the impact of scale and composition. One major project will be to complete a life-size ‘mural’ drawing based off inspirations from class; in preparation we will look at mural art throughout history. Art History, intuition, architecture (organization), and psychology will be considered essential elements of this class.
