Course Summary:

This course will focus on studying the human figure through drawing and painting, ceramics, and 3D Printing. Lessons willl cycle through three areas starting first with Drawing, next Ceramics, and finally 3D Printing. Designed for student enrolled in Intermediate Drawing or higher,  projects will challenge students at their own level within each section.

Course Details:

During the Drawing & Painting portion of the class, students will start with quick gesture and contour drawings focusing on accurate proportions and foreshortening. Students will use a variety of materials as they use value to create form and explore mood expression in their art. Short studies of these concepts will lead into a longer in depth portrait drawing.

The Ceramics and 3D Printing sections of the course will focus on smaller more detailed features. During the ceramics weeks, students will learn the fundamentals of hand building including pinch, slab, and coil construction, as well as carving and modeling techniques as they complete their detailed study. Students will glaze their finished pieces.

For 3D modeling, students will complete a separate study using specialized software with our 3D printer. One finished model per student will be printed. The course will close with a review discussion about the benefits of understanding 2D and 3D form in art.
