Approaches to Observational Drawing 21D5-1

Through in-studio and outdoor exploration, practice, demonstrations, and artist examples, Emily will help students explore a range of methods for drawing from observation. Beginning with contour line exercises, progressing through gesture drawing and finishing the week with exploring color relationships, students can expect to complete a portfolio of drawings. Time will be spent on both quick studies as well as longer, sustained pieces, and there will also be an opportunity to examine collections.

This class must meet minimum enrollment by April 30, 2021 at 4 PM. Please register before this date to ensure your spot.

Due to current covid-19 safety protocol, class enrollment will be limited to allow for physical distancing, etc. Students are encouraged to register early. Should you find that the class you want to attend is full, we encourage you to get on our waitlist and, as safety standards continue to evolve, we anticipate that additional class spaces will be made available.

Should COVID 19 affect our ability to meet in person this class will pivot to a virtual class for the same duration of time with minor modifications.
