This five day drawing intensive for beginning and advanced students expands the experience and definition of drawing. Drawing exercises emphasize figure/ground, composition, color and scale while exploiting materials and technique to push the perceptual conventions of the still life, the landscape and the figure. The course includes daily demonstrations and discussions of historical and contemporary masters use of ink, gouache, graphite, acrylic and pastel with visual references from Rembrandt and Freud to Eve Hesse and Amy Sillman.
