Course Description

RISD Advanced Program for High School Students course: Experiential Drawing

Drawing by Joseph Grajales

This course expands upon the idea of what drawing is and why it is important: a thinking process, a way to explore, a way to solve visual problems, a way to broaden creative passages. Using skills and concept building techniques learned in Experiential Drawing I, students pursue more advanced approaches that incorporate observation methods that move beyond representation and into more intuitive means of expressing ideas. Students are encouraged to take risks through material experimentation, and alternative ways of mark-making. Emphasis is placed on establishing a self-motivated, self-critical working process of inquiry. Reference to contemporary issues and artists provides inspiration to create a personal vision for a final project.

Notes

This is a 5 week course that includes 3 live Zoom meetings outlined in the schedule of the section. In this intensive course, students should expect to spend a minimum of 4 hours per week of engaging in coursework. Students should plan their schedules accordingly to keep up with the class.
