In the Mix: Combining Drawing and Painting Course
July 18 - July 22, 2011
Explore the various possibilities that arise when you combine drawing and painting. You will work from a foundation of traditional drawing and painting methods and introduce several new approaches to help expand your options and range. You may choose to work exclusively with one medium or experiment with a variety of materials. While one medium may be suitable most of the time, in some instances it may be appropriate to introduce other media in order to create new possibilities (such as paint or color within the drawing, drawing in the painting, gouache within the ink wash or collage in the painting). The objective of the course is to create a supportive atmosphere in which you will acquire a sound foundation for drawing and painting and discover a natural and personal direction. We will use the nude model as our point of departure and explore other personal subjects for individuals.
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.
