Title:   Mixed Media Exploration: Drawing from Nature      

Course Number:      DRW 001201
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

This course takes an adventurous, hands-on approach to mixed media drawing while exploring the ways in which our ancient ancestors viewed animals, nature, spirit, and consciousness itself. We will investigate the outlooks and artistic conceptions of varied ancient and pre-industrial peoples, while attempting to transcend our contemporary milieu and create from a more primal and honest place. Myth, metaphor, symbolism and ritual will all come into play, as we react to various conceptual ideas, learn from the breakthroughs of those around us, and transform the studio space into an environment of pure freedom and creativity. Students will be encouraged to experiment with various types of tools, media and surfaces, including common materials such as inks, charcoal, pastels, as well as uncommon items such as quills, reeds, natural pigments, burned wood, and more. There will be demonstrations of materials and techniques, as well as group discussion and one-on-one assistance. Weather permitting, we will occasionally utilize the outdoors as a source of inspiration, materials, motivating objects, and as a temporary drawing environment. Students at all levels of skill and experience are welcome.
