This class explores the broader applications of drawing- realistic, symbolic and expressive. You will have opportunities to work with charcoal, paint, pastel and collage. We will examine what makes a work of art abstract, realistic or somewhere in between as you learn to deconstruct the representational to create an abstracted image. Weekly homework exercises will assist in furthering your understanding of working with materials and processes. The class is open to students with some prior drawing or painting experience.
