Continuing Education Course

SEM: 41


Drawing from Memory


In this course, students use fundamental techniques of composition, line, value, shape, form, mass, texture, and color to draw from memory and their imaginations. Students communicate mood, emotion, and thought through line, gesture, and image. Projects also address collage, combining cut and torn shapes from magazines, newspaper, and student drawings to better understand composition, form, and design. Students access life, photographs, and memory to create still lives, portraits, landscapes, and abstract imagery. Fascinating readings draw from the fields of art and psychology, addressing consciousness and memory. Along with mining our own memories, this course examines collective memory, cultural memory, amnesia, and more. Materials include charcoal, graphite, pencils, Conte, ink, and color pastel.

Prerequisite: None

First class materials: 18 x 24 inch newsprint pad, drawing board and a black marker (Tombow - 'dual brush pen')
