In this course students will explore, practice and learn coloured pencil drawing in combination with non-traditional media and methods. A variety of subjects including still life, botanical and portraits will be explored. Students will learn techniques for accuracy in rendering, building on and developing observational drawing skills and compositional perspective. We’ll push into areas not traditionally used with coloured pencils such as: scratching on paper, incorporating writing, using markers and chalk/oil pastels. Understanding balance, colour, form and visual movement will be an important focus as we work to give voice to students compositions using single and multi-drawing images through diptychs and triptychs. All skill levels are welcome.
