Explore, compose, and analyze your imagination through drawing. Our goal is to draw forms and scenes that look like something familiar. We will then formulate personalized approaches to make them compelling and narrative. By breaking down traditional rendering techniques and we can build them back up in our own ways. Through live figure drawing sessions, examining historical and contemporary rendering and composition techniques, discussions, demonstrations, and one on one dialogue and guidance, we will explore and create wonderful ways to make an image look like something.
