Mixed Media Figure Drawing Course
July 11 - July 15, 2011
Would you like to take an entirely new approach to your figure drawings? Are you curious about combining media? Are you hoping to create images that communicate your point of view as well as reflect the spirit of your subject? In this course you will be introduced to methods for working with a variety of media while exploring the human form as your subject. You will work with a variety of wet and dry materials, including acrylics, inks, graphite, pastel and collage. Related strategies for construction will be discussed and a live model will be available for reference. We will also study examples of current art that use alternative ways to inform and record a figure. Other resources include invention, memory, found images or borrowed forms. As you attempt to translate what you see, feel and think into meaningful marks, you will be encouraged to develop your own ideas and creative process.
The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s week-long intensives allow you to fully immerse yourself in artmaking. Register now for Continuing Education July courses.
