Nature and Abstract Drawing


Learn how to create abstract drawings using natural forms as inspiration. We will start with perennials, seedpods, trees, rocks, and water as our forms of study and learn how to transform these representational objects into abstract formal compositions that reflect your personal interests. We will use graphite, charcoal, ink, and a variety of paper surfaces to create art. Study of contemporary artists, a group drawing, a photo assignment, and a final large-scale project will be part of this enjoyable class.

SUMMER 2020 ONLINE CLASSES: Tap into your creativity right from your home in an online Art School class! We're offering live, online classes in drawing, painting, ceramics, and more, taught by our wonderful Art School faculty in real time. Capacity is limited to ensure small class sizes so you can maximize your time with your instructor and your classmates. You'll learn together in community with your fellow students, with additional opportunities for one-on-one time and individual feedback from your instructor, just like in our in-person classes!
