ARTSTUDI 141S: Drawing Outdoors

In this introductory class, we take drawing out into the world, exploring different environments, techniques, and approaches as we go. The fundamental nuts-and-bolts of basic drawing techniques: light logic, depicting depth and drawing the figure, are integrated into each environment. From the Stanford campus: its cafe's, architecture and landscaping, to redwoods and water, to more urban settings, drawings will range from high-speed gestures to longer, more contemplative work. Through pen, graphite, charcoal, ink, watercolor/gouache and mixed media, we explore dichotomous relationships, as well as those in seemingly perfect harmony. We move from the inanimate to animate, figure and architecture, motion and stillness, to the micro and macro, considering how even the smallest patch of earth may be as monumental as Hoover Tower. Both beginning and advanced students are welcome. Summer.

ARTSTUDI 147S: DRAWING AND PAINTING INTENSIVE

The introductory course teaches the basic tools of drawing and oil painting. We will take advantage of Stanford's beautiful campus to draw and paint outside along with studio work and slide discussions in the classroom. Exercises begin with gestural mark-making, moving through linear perspective and tonal studies using a variety of media from graphite and charcoal to bamboo brush and ink. The introduction to oil painting explores the ways we build layers up to a finished work. Students will enter painting through color theory, strategies of abstract painting, and exposure to influential painters. Each student will acquire familiarity with foundational techniques and materials while developing their personal voice in assigned projects. No previous painting or drawing experience is necessary. Options will be provided for advanced students.
