Drawing, Drawing, Drawing!

Mondays, 3pm

Course Description

"How can I know what I think till I see what I say?"
E.M. Forster

In this class we will use drawing to see that we say and to know what we think. Drawing is a fundamental way to decode our thoughts: making blind drawings, movement drawings, weaving drawings, from live models, from performances, from film stills and video projections. Ultimately to better understand "drawing" and how it forms the foundation of our art.
