"I do not want to go until I have faithfully made the most of my talent
and culticated the seed that was placed in me."
- Kathe Kollwitz, visual artist
Drawing (Fundamental)This course introduces the various media and techniques of drawing. Topics include dry media such as pencil, graphite, charcoal, pastel and oil stick; and wet media such as pen, brush, ink and watercolour. Emphasis will be on rendering skills, such as light, shadows, textures, shapes, forms, perspectives, and compositions. Focus will be on still-life. Liberal techniques will also be explored, which include contour, gesture and memory drawing. Selected work by artists of various periods will be discussed. There will be in-class exercises, home assignments and group critiques. No drawing experience is required.
