Drawing I
Instructor: Matt Borruso

In this project-based course we will move through the many facets of a contemporary drawing practice including the exploration of blind contours, life drawing, memory, composition, perspective, drawing from the imagination, drawing from the photograph, and more. In all of these projects we will work to sharpen our sense of observation and endeavor to “see” more, recognizing underlying patterns and basic forms, as well as identifying the lights, shadows, and complex textures that give shape to our physical environment. Students will work with traditional drawing mediums such as graphite, charcoal, and ink, and the course will include readings, demonstrations, presentations, and group critiques.

Drawing and Creative Writing
Instructor: Daniela Rossell

This hybrid online studio class invites you to experience the power of images and the written word in concert. We look into the visual dimensions of language, make up semiotic games and in general experiment with inventive tensions between text and image. What does it mean to draw with the eyes of a writer? Or to write like an artist? We see that our writing can be both an object and a portal that leads to other methods of creative investigation, other artworks, disciplines, selves, and universes. Here are key tools for problem solving and growing our imagination. And as we play with poem-pictures and word-works and images of writing—as we interrogate their cross-pollinations and possibilities—our aim is also to repair our ability to pay sustained attention. So we work to expand our awareness, tune to the surroundings, be where we are, challenge stereotypes, allow ideas to flow, and come into direct contact with surprising art. We look at art history as artists.
