Description

This lively and energetic course moves swiftly through many aspects of drawing from traditional methods to contemporary experimental techniques.  Through drawing you will explore and experiment with contemporary concepts, subjects and ideas.

The projects are fast and designed to encourage students not to be precious but to think in a free-ranging, open-minded manner. The emphasis is on the production of concepts rather than ‘slick’ finish. You will be doing 100 projects, so it is not a course that teaches step-by-step technical skills. As a course with a strong emphasis on creativity, in order for students to benefit from it, they must engage with their imagination and tackle the projects with an open mind.

Topics covered

  • You will explore many themes such as time, memory, observation, and chance.
  • You will be guided through a wide variety of approaches and styles, and introduced to both traditional and experimental methods of drawing in an environment of encouragement.
  • There will be illustrated talks on artists who have explored drawing in both traditional and experimental ways.

Who should take this course?

Anyone who wants to learn about all the possible skills, techniques, materials and methods of drawing will benefit from this course.  It is also suitable for those who want to build up a diverse and rich portfolio of drawings quickly.
