Students will hone specific skills needed to produce high quality drawings while working in multiple mediums. We will focus on becoming a better artist by creating smooth, flowing strokes within our work as well as making lines disappear through the use of value. Students will experience ink, graphite, conte' and color pencil as our main medium sources. We will discuss paper bonds and how they relate to the hardness and softness of our chosen medium. We will work on a self portrait as well as other group activities. Over the course of the semester we will develop our own flair and create drawings that emphasize and showcase our personal style. Students will learn to work in a series while creating large scale projects.
