CDR 106-F18 | Drawing from Narrative Art, Ashley Bryan at PMA

Sat + Sun, 9/29 -9/30, 1-4PM, Room: PMA

Maximum Enrollment: 10 LBS

Course Description

How do visual artists tell a story? In the galleries of the Ashley Bryan show we will study visual principles such as focal point, grouping, repetition with variation, and continuation line. Then through conversation and drawing exercises we will explore how these principles undergird the composition of narrative art and thus support expressive meaning.

TUITION: $130 + fees: $20
CEUs: n/a

*This class takes place at the Portland Museum of Art. The instructor will contact students prior to the start of class to go over where you'll meet.
