Drawing Nature – Kathleen Moore
Tuesday| 9/17-11/19 | 1:30-4:30 P.M.

The beauty of nature stirs the emotions and inspires the spirit. Develop an intimate understanding of plant structure while conveying an emotional, aesthetic response to what you see. Each week, you will evaluate the compositional possibilities of a landscape with quick notan (a Japanese word meaning “light-dark balance”) sketches, then settle in for a sustained drawing period focusing on both distant and close-up plant forms. When the weather allows students will draw outside on location including at the Volunteer Park Conservatory and the Washington Park Arboretum.

Foundations of Drawing: The Still Life – Kathleen Moore
Tuesday/Thursday | 9/17-11/21 | 6:30-9:30 P.M.

This fundamental drawing class gives you the basic skills, practice, and confidence to visually interpret, and draw the world around you using a variety of black and white media. In the first 10 sessions working from inspiring stillife set ups you study accurate drawing, the rendering of 3-dimensional form using light and shadow, markmaking techniques, and perspective. In the second half you apply what you have learned to an intensive study of the head and features, sketching from life models and completing one multiple-session finished drawing, bringing together portrait, stillife, and the basics of composition into one dynamic and successsful image. This class is followed Winter and Spring Quarters by Foundation Figure Drawing II, and Figure Drawing In Interiors. Homework required.
