Life Drawing (14-18 yrs)
Using the AGO collections as inspiration, students further their unique approaches to the fundamental skills and techniques of drawing. Students explore concepts such as line and contour, positive and negative and space, perspective and proportion, light and shadow, shading, grey scale and tone, texture, gesture and more while experimenting with an exciting variety of artist's tools, media and contemporary techniques for expressive and imaginative mark-making. Experienced artist-instructors are skilled with addressing each student's interest and skill level both independently and as a group of peers. Materials may include pencil, charcoal, conte, oil and chalk pastel, and watercolour. We work with a combination of still life and fully-clothed life models, and maybe even a dog!
All materials included. This course meets in the AGO's Anne Tanenbaum Gallery
