Felicita Norris
Monday–Thursday, June 15- July 10

9:30 am–12:30 pm | Studio 13

No Prerequisite

Learn to tell stories, communicate visually, and imagine new worlds through large- and small-scale drawings working from models and beyond, using a range of 2D media including charcoal, ink, graphite, gouache, and collage. By paying close attention to composition, line, value, and scale as related to the figure you will enhance your technical abilities in drawing observationally. The second half of the class you will dive into completing a personal final project which may incorporate drawing from imagination, photographic references, collage, and more. Models in this class are nude.
