Fields of Study

Preparatory for studies or careers in
visual arts, creative writing, psychology, humanities

Drawing images from one's own life in both writing and drawing are activities that will form the center of our work together.  Students will have the opportunity to develop skill at drawing from posed models and will use journal writing sessions to identify the unique events, situations, and experiences that have formed their life context.  Students will be expected to present a final project at the end of the session that will document their effort at Drawing a Life. Activities will include weekly figure drawing sessions, journal writing workshops, work-in-progress critiques, and individual conferences with faculty.
