Course Description

RISD CE course: Drawing from Nature

Drawing by Alissa O'Brien

Focusing on the definition of form and structure, students in this course carefully observe birds, shells, insects, bones, plants, flowers and more with the objective of translating proportion and depth onto the two-dimensional page and creating realistic renderings. Line, tone and value are explored through work in pencil, pen and ink, and ink wash. Design and composition are also covered. Although the course is highly specialized in subject matter, skills attained here are applicable to a wide range of drawing subjects, media and styles. Note: This is the first course of a two-part series. Students enrolled in the fall may also register for the spring course, Painting from Nature.
