Expressive Drawing Class
Using the horse as the theme for this class, students will develop creative skills to carry out their desired vision. They will learn to take ideas from conception to finished artworks.
Holly Jorde will guide students through this intermediate course, titled “Expressive Drawing: Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Face – The Infinite Lessons We Can Learn from The Creative Process.” Students will utilize a variety of media working within the limits of the two-dimensional format. Activities will include: exercises employed by surrealists, modern and contemporary artists; group and individual critique; discussions about composition; the elements and principles of design; and the cultural significance and meaning of the horse as subject matter.
This is an intermediate level course designed for students who have a basic understanding of the elements and principles of design and some previous experience with painting and/or drawing.
A companion clay class will be offered during the same time which uses the horse as the source of inspiration. At times these two classes will meet to focus on common content and to inspire each other. Participants have an opportunity to exhibit their work from this class at “The Horse of Course invitational” exhibition at the Nordic Center opening on March 18.
Sessions of this class are held on eight Thursday nights from Jan. 6 to March 10, with two weeks off. The cost is $160 for Duluth Art Institute members and $180 for non-members. Register at duluthartinstitute.org.
Proof of vaccination is required to participate in this class. On the first day of class students must present their vaccine card or a copy of it, along with a form of identification. Masks will be required.
