Expressing the Subconscious in Drawing

William Downs

Tuition $1,155
Code D1121-22

Automatic drawing is a process whereby one enters into an altered state of consciousness to explore the worldview of an artist through the medium of the hands. Gesture drawing is one example. Using automatic drawing, an individual can connect with and channel the sensibilities of artists such as Picasso or Cézanne. Each class begins with a lecture and demo on artists and techniques to be explored. Students learn the automatic drawing process and how to merge it with a multitude of media and mixed media.
