10 Weeks / 600$

Professor John Ros

This online course will introduce a series of practical drawing exercises in order to develop the way we see in relation to hand-eye coordination. As you set up your on working studio, we will explore line, tone, shape, form and mark-making using predominately charcoal. This course encourages an inventive approach to composition and introduces you to the underlying abstract forces that occur in all visual exploration. Explore the creative possibilities of drawing, gain confidence and broaden your expectations and understanding of the visual. Drawing 1 is about learning how to see and is intended for those looking to enhance representational drawing skills through experimentation. Ideal for introductory level learners, though this course is also good for those looking to broaden their portfolio as well as those looking for a newly dedicated drawing component to their practice.

Originally developed to take place in NYC's Central Park, this course has moved to our online studio.  Artists will be guided to create a series of en plain air sketches and drawings in their own communities over two weeks which will culminate in a larger finished studio landscape drawing or painting.  Direction on perspective, form and composition will be central to the focus of developing a series of sketches and drawings that build upon the unique visual vocabularies of participants.  Resources will be provided and guidance will be given on developing sketches and how to translate them into finished works in the studio. Suitable for anyone looking to concentrate some time working outdoors and learning new ways to research source material to develop a new body of work. New course sessions post on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Courses all meet in an online studio — a digital space that allows enrolled artists to come together and share their experiences. One live one-on-one session with your professor will be scheduled as your final crit.
