Hone your drawing skills and add exciting work to your growing portfolio in this teen-specific workshop designed to teach young artists not only how to draw recognizable objects, but to develop new ways of seeing the world. We focus on the most basic design elements including line, composition, color, scale and perspective. Working from a still life, live model, and the landscape, students learn a variety of methods to enhance fundamental drawing skills and to build a strong and dynamic portfolio of original drawings. Working mostly from observation, we explore a wide range of media and subject matter to produce several finished drawings throughout the week.
Media & Techniques:
Using traditional drawing materials including graphite, charcoal and ink, we work with elements of scale and proportion in a variety of experiments and exercises to develop works on paper. Students also explore alternative drawing materials and collage materials later in the week.
Demonstrations are followed by hands-on experimentation. Each day includes group discussions, drawing demonstrations, exercises, one-on-one help and plenty of time to draw in the studio.
