Drawing I and II: Inspired by the Collection

This class focuses on drawing from observation. Become acquainted with exquisite objects from the UMMA collections—abstract sculpture (Giocometti, Moore, Calder), bronze dancers by Rodin, African artifacts (nailed ritual objects, beaded hats, fertility figures), Thai Buddha and Indian Shiva figures, and Korean pottery—while developing a sense of proportion, perspective, line quality, value, composition, and personal style. Approaches introduced will include working on watercolored surface with white conte pencil and graphite pencil, applying collage, or writing on drawings. To the first class, please bring: HB, 2B, and 2H graphite pencils; an eraser; and an 11 x 14 inch sketchbook. All levels welcome.
