Level: College, Graduate, Young Professionals
In this course, you will develop a basic knowledge of contemporary drawing through an experimental approach, attending demonstrations, workshops, field trips and studio sessions. We will dissect Paris through the lens of drawing: its distinct urban energy, the storied clichés, the rich art and food cultures. We will also incorporate a personal narrative to visually understand your personal relationship to the city, while improving your core drawing technique and building your portfolio.
Museum visits, visiting lectures by professional artists and hands-on assignments will create rich research opportunities to develop a strong artistic practice and sketchbook.
So what makes this course experimental? You will be taken out of your comfort zone when being confronted with time
constraints, large-scale drawing challenges, new techniques and media, real world settings and deeply personal drawing projects. In an ever-evolving media landscape, you will confront drawing in an evocative and modern way, using social and new media which can easily be shared, and evolve into a solid creative practice. At the end of this two-week course, you will have got out and about in Paris, engaging with the city in a whole new way.
