Fall Semester (14 Weeks) Meets online for an hour, weekly This is an advanced drawing class designed for students who have completed the Nature Journaling class (formerly known as Into the Woods). We will take what we learned in Nature Journaling and dive even deeper into realism, details, and advanced drawing techniques. Each class will begin with the reading of a complex poem from renowned poets like Wordsworth, Frost, Longfellow, and more. We will discuss what the poem means and learn about literary devices used in the poems as well as historical context for the authors. Then we will dive into our advanced projects. We will spend time building our skills as the projects progress in difficulty. Your students will learn to draw anatomy realistically- like hands, eyes, and body structure (fully clothed! We aren’t Michelangelos!). They will learn about perspective, negative space, values, hues, contrast, and more! Projects will include relistic animal drawings, human anatony, still lifes etc. which will often take multiple classes to complete. A PDF book will be sent to you before class begins. Created and taught by Grace Martin Wolfe.
