“What you want is the experience of making something that you haven’t seen before.” – Philip Guston
The purpose of this course is to draw from observation to experience the power of nature; to study it, recreate it, and then regard it in a new light. Each week the students will work on creating two- and three-dimensional space ‘simultaneously’ within their drawings by practicing formal elements of art. We will work from the model, still life, interior spaces, and landscape. The students will learn how to use the experience of drawing as a fundamental means to express their experiences of seeing and to grow as artists. We will look at relevant artwork as a guide through each lesson, with a focus on figuration and the impact of scale and composition. One sustained project toward the end of the course will be based on inspirations from class up to that date.
