Abstract Drawing: Level 1
This is not your grandmother's drawing class. Get loose in this unconventional drawing class using a variety of drawing tools and materials on paper.
This class is for creative individuals desiring to express their inner world through visual media. Professionals and beginning artists are welcome as well, as abstract drawing aids innovation, composition planning, and thinking “outside the box.”
Drawing is a way for anyone, regardless of professional artistic experience, to tap into their intrinsic imagination. Abstract drawing is a way to express emotions visually, work out creative muscles, and discover something new.
In this course, students will broaden their understanding of the abstract genre by learning from artistic role models. Prompts will be used to apply abstract drawing concepts like contrast, rhythm, balance, and focal point. Engaging activities will enable students to create compositions using the fundamentals of shape, line, and texture.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS...
• those who want to learn about contemporary methods
• those who want to learn to be expressive and loose
• those who enjoy using drawing materials
• adults who want to learn to be gestural and abstract
