with Patrick J. Reed
Introduces basic drawing techniques, with a focus on drawing from observation. Exercises explore technique, medium and strategies in visual thinking. This class is a perfect introduction for beginners, with some new skills to be learned for the more experienced. You will see your skills improve, no matter what level you are starting at!
Each class is structured around a formal topic: contour lines, tonality, negative space, portraits, etc... with examples from art-history and contemporary art. Technique is built through guided exercises, followed by time for experimentation and longer drawings. We draw from a live model and from still-life creations.
The class field-trip is an excursion to draw the ready-made still-lives of Berlin’s Natural History Museum, including dinosaur bones and exotic taxidermy. This class will take the form of a Drawing Scavenger Hunt!
