SUMMER ART CAMPS

FOUNDATIONS OF DRAWING

For 16- to 20-year-old artists

Foundation Drawing is an introduction to drawing as a basic practice that underlies all visual art making. Students will investigate the basic elements of visual language (including mark, line, gesture, contour, edge, value, form, volume, mass, density,
proportion, scale, linear perspective, order, pattern, rhythm, texture, and the illusion of space) through a series of observations and exercises. Emphasis is placed on drawing from observation. There will be discussion about how science, technology, engineering and mathematics integrate with the visual arts in a S.T.E.A.M. context.
