Drawn to Paint

You won’t find a painter who doesn’t acknowledge the importance of drawing in his or her work. We will discover just what makes us “drawn to paint” in this course where we explore two disciplines: drawing and painting. You will be provided an overview of drawing basics, including gesture, contour, sighting, measuring, and mark-making. Then, you will be encouraged to think through compositions of larger projects, experiment with color, and find ways to incorporate drawing into the painting process. These exercises will ultimately help you compose stronger works of art. Students of all skill levels are welcome to draw and paint abstractly, representationally, or both.
