Course Description

RISD CE drawing course

Building on skills acquired in "Drawing 1, Part A," this course establishes a broader framework for the application of the drawing medium, building toward more complex and informed work. Spatial systems, including perspective, are investigated as well as fundamentals of composition to construct dynamic imagery. Measuring and attention to negative space are essential skills used and reinforced throughout the learning process. Transcribing what is seen or imagined into visual form utilizing multiple approaches -- from note taking to rendering to diagramming and sketching -- is explored. The course is structured around demonstrations, guided exercises, and sustained drawing of varied subject matter including still-life, landscape, architecture and the human form.

Prerequisites

Students must be an adult age 18 or older to participate.

Necessary Supplies

Required Supplies:

  • Drawing paper - between 11”x14” and 24”x36”. Any quality will do, we’ll be using pencil and ink in this class
  • Pencils - you’ll want some light pencils for sketching and some dark pencils for finished lines. I’d recommend 2H for the light and 2B for the dark.
  • Erasers - any type
  • A straight edge - a yard stick is good. You’ll want it to be at least as long as your paper.
  • Pens - any sort of pen will do. Technical pens, ultra fine tip Sharpies, even ball point. Just make sure it’s something you’re comfortable filling a page with. So, avoid the .005 tips.
  • Your phone to document your work
