Drawing allows us to see through fresh eyes, gaining a new perspective; it engages us by offering more than one way to look at the world. Through short readings from John Berger, discussion, and instruction on drawing, this contemporary drawing course teaches the basics of drawing by challenging students to slow down in order to see.
I'm really excited about the opportunity to teach this class which builds on my research. I'll be using the writings of John Berger who died earlier this year. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/jan/02/john-berger-obituary
This is an introductory course but students will work at their own pace so anyone with drawing experience is welcome. Using both conventional and contemporary methods of exploring drawing, students will learn drawing techniques and composition.
