The same way an athlete exercises to optimize performance, this course will exercise eye-hand coordination by working with the figure in multiple formats. Students will practice drawing from a live model with a series of exercises designed to modify sight, touch, and perception. We will then use clay to render 3D versions of original sketches. By the end of the course, students will have collected a series of 2D and 3D works that will be archived and presented to observe the difference between early exercises and later, more advanced course projects.
“Carmen provided a very supportive environment and her casualness allowed space for experimentation and playfulness. Carmen was a joy.” –Paper/Clay Alliance student, 2014
