Drawing Concepts

Approximately one half of our class will be utilized drawing from the figure, costumed and nude. A variety of pose lengths will be explored, stressing the entire figure and the ability to see the entire picture plane. In addition, we will draw furniture, cityscapes, still-lifes, and interiors to experience and examine how 3-D space is delineated and represented on a 2-D surface. Art historical approaches, pre- Renaissance, a bit of perspective, and modern examples will be looked at to see how drawing describes and defines the picture plane. Everything we look at in this class, we will draw. We will experience drawing as a tool for understanding and problem solving. Sketchbooks will be required. For Leadership in the Arts (with Parsons The New School for Design) students only.
