CDR 105-F | Drawing at the PMA

Wed, Thurs, Fri, 1-4pm, 9/13-9/15, Room: Portland Museum of Art

Maximum Enrollment: 8 LBS

Course Description

One of the ways art students trained in the 19th century was by drawing from great works of art in museums. In this course, we will address the ways hatching and cross hatching help us to create form and at the same time add to the design and flow of a work of art. Note this is different than the course offered in the spring which focused on sculpture and on plane structure. In the Galleries students will draw from master paintings, drawings, and prints to expand their appreciation of what drawing has been and can be. Students will develop new ways of seeing and develop their own personal interest and style. Because of important museum safety rules all materials will be provided, for example we will draw with graphite only.

TUITION: $150 + FEES: $20
CEUs: n/a
