Drawing for Artists & Designers

Spring Pre-College Studio for grades 9-12

The ability to draw is essential for all practicing artists and designers. In Portfolio Intensive: Drawing for Artists & Designers, students will learn drawing concepts fundamental to contemporary art and design practice. Our participants will gain knowledge and experience in a variety of approaches, ranging from observational to experimental drawing. Each class session is structured as studio-drawing time, giving students ample opportunity to build their drawing skills and apply new concepts. Lectures, demonstrations, handouts, and slides will enhance covered material.

Class meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00-6:30 pm at the Stamps School of Art & Design for a total of thirteen sessions.

Dates: May 1 - June 14, 2017
Cost: $300
Financial aid available to students who qualify
