DRAW-IT– Drawing is all about learning to draw what you see, whether it’s a realistic rendering or cartooning where you exaggerate to create an effect. We will work on portraits, still lives, and design using proportion, perspective, and line quality to produce strong drawings. Starting with pencil and paper, students will have the option of experimenting with other media such as colored pencils and marker pen.
Mondays, 4:30 pm-6:00 pm, September 17 – Nov 12(no class Oct. 8th) 8 weeks

Quality – This course will allow students to focus on the creation of one highly refined drawing which may be used in the contexts of a portfolio for college admission or for the quality section of an AP Portfolio. Students can choose the media they work with but the size will be restricted to 18″ x 24″ or smaller. The goal is to demonstrate mastery of technical skill in demonstrating illusion of depth.

Rachel Gaivoto -Still Life in ink wash

INK WASH STILL LIFE – This class will practice the development of composition through observational drawing, in addition to learning to create values by exploring the technique of ink wash. We will focus on the importance of proportion and range of value to create the illusion of depth on a 2-dimensional surface. Pencil, brush, bamboo pen, and quill pen will be used. Students will begin with observational drawing, then learn to create a value scale in ink by developing a range of mid-tones and complete a practice sketch in ink. They will go on to develop a still life project in ink washes with guidance towards achieving a balanced and dynamic finished composition.
