Drawing from Observation

with G Caruso

Introduces basic drawing techniques with a focus on drawing from observation. Class exercises explore technique, medium and strategies in visual thinking. A perfect introduction for beginners, with new skills to be learned for the more experienced. You will see your skills improve, no matter what level you are starting at!

Each class is structured around a formal topic: contour lines, tonality, negative space, portraits, etc… with examples from art-history and contemporary art. Technique is built through guided exercises, followed by time for experimentation and longer drawings. We draw from a live model and from still-life creations.

The field-trip is an excursion to draw the ready-made still-lives of Berlin’s Natural History Museum, including dinosaur bones and exotic taxidermy.
