D101i Drawing 1ONLINE

June 15, 2020August 21, 2020

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.

 

New course sessions will post weekly on Mondays. Courses all meet in an online studio — a digital space that allows enrolled artists to come together and share their experiences. Live sessions and group video meetings may occur, but the majority of discussion takes place in the online studio, where artists may participate as their schedule allows, providing more scheduling freedom.
