Imaginary Landscapes Drawing and Mixed Media Techniques: Ages 13-15


This course teaches visual design and drawing techniques - color, composition, form, expression - through use of multiple drawing media – graphite, charcoal, ink, collage and colored pastel. Students learn fundamental drawing skills (contour line, positive/negative space, value, composition, perspective), gain new methods for mixing different media together, and develop their own unique subject matter and imagery to create visually expressive drawings. Projects introduce traditional and non-traditional approaches to landscape, realism, and abstraction. Working from life, photographs and imagination, students complete several small and one large-scale mixed media drawing over the 10-day course.

First class materials: 11” x 14” sketchbook with heavy weight paper (100lb. or heavier) good for wet and dry media, graphite pencils (2H, 2B, 4B, 6B), compressed black charcoal stick set, 1 chamois, 1 medium sized paper blending stump, 1 kneaded eraser, 1 Mars white plastic eraser, pencil sharpener with shaving receptacle/canister, vine charcoal stick set, glue stick.

Please note: At the Goldsmith Campus, students check in at the Security Desk on the first day of class.
