Course Description

RISD Advanced Program for High School Students course: Experiential Drawing

Drawing by Joseph Grajales

In this course, principles and elements essential to drawing are explored through a variety of media and methods. Students may use materials such as charcoal, graphite, markers, collage and water-based paint—as well as found materials and invented tools—in order to explore different processes in drawing. Students learn about a range of compositional strategies. Tonal studies, volume, weight and contour, line and form are pursued through observation and interpretation. Students will draw from observation, research, memory and imagination. Focus is placed on developing an active sketchbook practice that serves as an impetus for larger projects and allows others to understand your process. Participation in group and individual critique serves as the catalyst to individual growth as an artist.

Notes

In this intensive course, students should expect to spend a minimum of 4 hours per week of engaging in coursework. Students should plan their schedule accordingly to keep up with class.
