Drawing on Location
New York City is filled with exciting places to practice your drawing skills so let it be your inspiration for this course! From Grand Central Station, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Conservatory Garden, Greenwood Cemetery, ancient Greek and Roman sculptures at the Met, to the Fish Bar in the East Village, you will learn to take on new challenges and gain confidence in drawing. Weather permitting we will draw in parks and gardens. Basic issues such as expressive mark-making, line quality, composition, atmospheric and linear perspective, proportion, value (shades of gray), and light and shadow will be reviewed and reinforced during class. You will receive personalized instruction, and you will be encouraged to push beyond your reluctance, fears, and familiar habits. This class is appropriate for students at all levels of experience and can be taken many times.
