CLASS or WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Abstract Drawing 1 is an 8-week course that focuses on abstract and non-objective techniques, composition, and the fundamental elements of art and principles of design. Throughout the course, students will learn how to use thumbnail sketches to brainstorm their artwork's context, concept, technique, or style, and compose basic elements such as line, shape, form, texture, value, and space with imagination within a composition. They will also learn how to simplify complex forms, shapes, or light to convey the essence of what they see onto paper in a composition or format. In each assignment, students will continue to explore the art fundamentals of composition, spatial relationship, value contrast, local value, light logic, value distribution, pattern, texture, and rendering, with a strong emphasis on imagination and creativity. If you are a creator who loves to create artwork with simple elements, this class is perfect for you!
