Level: Undergraduate, Graduate, & Young Professionals
In this course, you will develop your knowledge of contemporary drawing through an experiental 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 experiential? 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.
