Introduction to Drawing: Landscape Immersion

In this class, students will explore introductory drawing techniques specially in relation to the Colorado landscape. Emphasis will be on observational and technical drawing skills as we explore landscapes surrounding the Colorado Springs area, drawing outside on location. Students will gain fundamental skills by studying line, shape, value, and composition. These concepts will be explored using different marking making tools will be introduced including charcoal, pencil, ink, and conte. Students will be both in field drawing from the landscape itself, and in the classroom, learning technical concepts in a more controlled setting. Taking lessons from this multi-pronged, approach, students will complete a portfolio of finished drawings that speak to the complex nature of our contemporary landscapes. (Summer only 2021-22).
