Danforth Drawing Classes

Drawing classes begin on Tuesday, April 7 at Danforth Museum School in Framingham, Mass. Emphasis on seeing shapes of light and dark within a compositional frame is presented. Learn to observe the direction of light on objects in space. Warm-up with gestural thumbnail sketches from observation and from memory. Translate complex forms into two-dimensional compositions using line, value, edge and mark variation, measurement, and awareness of external space relationships. The widest spectrum of styles is shown for comparison. Open for registration. Call 508-620-0050.

Drawing Class Demo

This week students worked on drawing heads in the observational drawing class I teach at Danforth Museum School in Framingham. We have progressed from drawing individual objects like the tea pot to complex forms such as the plaster bust of a man. The outlined features on the balloon help students see the difference between drawing flat, isolated features on a sphere in comparison to representing the underlying structure of the skull. White objects make it easier to observe shapes of light and dark cast by the raking spotlight. Registration is open for next session classes that begin April 7, 2015.
