This studio course will provide hands-on instruction on the properties and versatility of the charcoal medium. Students will further develop and refine their drawing techniques, as well as gain an understanding of observational drawing for the purpose of artistic expression.
During the course, students will start learning with geometric shapes then move into still lifes and finish with a portrait drawing of master artists such as Caravaggio, Diego Velázquez, and Georges Seurat. Students will be asked to create a drawing that touches on different dimensions of these artists’ works, specifically chiaroscuro (the use of contrasting values).
Outcomes:
Define language associated with materials and drawing techniques.
Understanding of value and composition.
Explore the fundamentals of light, shadow, and volume using charcoal on paper
Discuss ideas and concepts related to Caravaggio, Diego Velázquez, and Georges Seurat’s work.
Further understand the processes of artistic expression within the drawn form.
Analyze and evaluate completed work.
