Life Drawing Lab (DRW2118.01)

Colin Brant
Drawing Lab provides an opportunity for student artists of all experience levels to further develop their skills with observationally-based drawing. Working primarily with the human figure, students build increased understanding of the poetic, dynamic, and inherently abstract nature of drawing, while paying close attention to the potential of formal elements such as shape, line, form, and the creation of pictorial space. Although each class period provides structures and activities within which students work, the ultimate aim of this course is to allow students the time and space necessary to further develop their drawing skills so as to best support individual projects and concerns. Class time is divided between drawing from life, discussing student work, and examining the use of the figure in visual art, both using contemporary and historical examples.
Please note that this course may require additional materials purchased by the student. Please note: much of this class will be spent drawing the human figure, both clothed and unclothed.
For the Spring ’21 term, this course will be taught in a hybrid format. In-person drawing sessions will be held whenever possible; online instruction, resources, and discussion of visual work will also be a regular part of the structure of this course.
