SU18 Tuesday Intro to Drawing

“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.”  Paul Klee

Drawing is a skill which through practice, can be learned and fostered. Anyone can learn to draw or can improve their abilities with practice!

This summer we will hold as many classes outdoors as the weather allows. Drawing from direct observation will teach students to capture and interpret the life and motion of the MIT campus and the city.

Each students’ skill set will grow through a variety of drawing techniques and exercises. An assortment of materials will be used including pencil (graphite), charcoal, oil pastel, conte crayon, ink and a collection of papers. Students will be encouraged to keep a small sketchbook outside of class, to practice the skills learned during class.

Materials List:

– Compressed charcoal

– Pencils  (H, F, HB, 3B, 6B)

– Some erasers (gum and or kneaded)

– Large drawing paper pad 18 “x 24”

– Small sketchbook to carry for daily use (5” x 7”, or any shape and size you like!)

This class meets 8 Tuesdays starting June 19 from 5:30-8:00pm in the 2D Studio (W20-425) and is taught by Nicole Tariverdian.
