Drawing Marathon – IN-PERSON: Portraiture and Presence with Linda Darling & Guests

In this intensive two-week Marathon, we will engage in the practice of drawing for eight hours per day, a rare opportunity. The focus will be on portraiture broadly defined, and closely observing the unique features and character of the model. We will pay close attention to spatial qualities both within the forms, and in relationship to the geometry presented by the paper.

Intersession Drawing Marathon – VIRTUAL: Constructing Space with Ed Praybe

During this Drawing Marathon participants will focus on the reciprocal relationship between motif and drawing. How do we construct a still life, the arrangement of objects and open intervals of space, in order to draw from it? How does the way we approach the drawing affect how we construct that space? How do both the drawings and the staging of objects evolve and inform one another throughout the process of observing and drawing?
