Experiment on paper! Designed to push the boundaries of traditional drawing, this class intends to open new creative paths for the students’ personal aesthetic and drawing language. Students will work with a variety of conventional media, such as charcoal and graphtie, and also experiment with unconventional materials—such as vellum, cold wax and natural pigments. This class will be a laboratory for students to learn about new materials and complete multiple drawings.
