Within this course we will explore new ways of drawing with diverse materials. We will approach a wide variety of materials and techniques and consider them in the context of drawing practice.
Because drawing can take an infinite variety of forms, each week we will look at drawing from a different vantage point focusing on topics from abstraction, to materials, to sculpture to challenge our own definitions of what drawing can be. We will look at contemporary artists exploring these same ideas in their work and then we will complete 2 exercises to develop this particular way of drawing. We will be treating each exercise as an experiment to leave room for new discoveries and approaches. These small projects will be a springboard for independent projects and ideas encouraging experimentation and discovery.
