This Is NOT a Drawing Class
Experiments in Alternative Mark-Making
TUESDAYS, FEB 6–APR 17, 4:00–6:30PM
This is not your traditional draw-a-bowl-of-fruit type of art course. This is not a calm studio space to hide behind an easel or a sketchbook. You won’t learn “proper” shading techniques or that thing that artists do where they put their thumb out in front of their face and squint. Taught by artist Leah Wolff, this course is all about finding strange and experimental ways of creating marks, lines, shapes, figures, and images—using unusual, three dimensional, messy materials to push the limits of our bodies, and the boundaries of what we think of as a drawing, in the process.
