Strengthen your work with a more thorough understanding of realism and abstraction. This course offers a survey of the early American Abstraction movement, which will inform drawing and composition exercises and studio work.
Learn new approaches and become more comfortable with large-scale drawing. Explore strategies for developing compositions in multi-plate/multi-layer printmaking processes. Investigate drawing techniques that will greatly enhance your drawings or printmaking compositions. We’ll focus special attention on the development of line, shape, color, value and texture to support pictorial content. Learn how to choose paper, boards and other materials that best suit your selected media. Weekly “assignments” and process drawing projects will encourage you to break old habits and inject new purpose in your personal imagery. The instructor will be present at weekly studio sessions to offer additional guidance as you work.
