LANDSCAPE DRAWING: SEEING THE LIGHT by Juli Sibley
6 Sessions, Tuesday, July 9 – August 13, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Improve your ability to see and observe the landscape through the eyes of artists from the Hudson River Valley School. These artists painted scenes of unparalleled beauty in a realistic fashion. These artists were also keen observers of nature and went outside to draw to get the facets of light on forms and to gather the inspiration they needed for their paintings. Drawing from great artists is a centuries old, tried and true way to learn. Our class will cover Left & Right Brain drawing techniques so that each individual student can apply the way they are best able "to see" based on brain dominance. Every week we'll work on a different drawing by artists such as J.M.W. Turner, Fredric Edwin Church, John Constable and others. We will have the Smart Board for large scale projections of drawings and everyone will also receive copies of every drawing. Class is suitable for beginners or advanced. Required student materials: 8 x 10 or 9 x 12 sketchpad (or mounted paper), drawing pencils: 2B & 4B recommended.
