Continuing Education Course



Portfolio Preparation: Life Drawing and Painting


This course focuses on drawing and painting the human figure. Emphasis is placed on understanding and conceptualizing the body as form in space, while considering the figure as an element of composition. Using traditional drawing materials, volumetric drawing serves as the foundation for further study. Students explore painting techniques and concepts through the use of acrylic paint. Advice and direction is provided to those students preparing a portfolio for Otis or other college art programs. Includes a guest lecture by a counselor from Otis’ Admissions Office who offers information on college requirements.
