If you like traditions, try the classical training of drawing from sculptures to learn sensitive work with light, shadows, form and anatomy. We will draw in the sculpture galleries at the Portland Museum of Art. By studying master drawings and anatomy studies and engaging in intense periods of drawing in the Museum galleries students will expand their appreciation of what drawing has been and can be. Students will develop new ways of seeing and explore their own personal interest and style. There will be an emphasis on learning consistent light and shadow systems as a way to strengthen form. Because of important museum safety rules all materials will be provided, for example we will draw with graphite only.
