Experimental Drawing: Edgework

By April 9, 2016February 3rd, 2024No Comments

Fridays, May 31 – June 28, 2024 – 10:00 – 12:30pm 

with J. Jordan Bruns

When two shapes of different value love each other very much, they sometimes come together to create an edge.  Experimental Drawing: Edgework, celebrates the union of two shapes and the edge they create.  Edges make up our physical reality, so if our aim is to make realistic looking/feeling drawings, we need adopt the edge.  Our in-class work will be split between still life and the live model.  Please note there is a $30 model fee paid in class.
