Drawing and Your Memories

This will be an intermediate-level drawing course for students who have some experience with drawing or have taken a basic drawing class. The focus will be on still-life studies using pencil, pen, and/or colored pencils on drawing paper. We will emphasize light and shadow, patterns, volume, composition, tools, and materials. Students will focus on items they bring that have a strong memory component or tell a personal story. Expressing symbolism and emotional content will be demonstrated and discussed. Some homework will be given!

Additional Fees: Each student will purchase and bring to class a drawing paper pad (at least 9X11 size), drawing pencils (including an ebony pencil), and a white eraser. In an effort to provide high quality colored pencils and a blender pencil/drawing pens, the instructor will order those supplies and distribute them at the first class for a materials fee of $20.00.

Instructor: Maribeth Nolde is a certified art teacher through JMU with a concentration in photography and collage art work. She is a member of an art gallery cooperative in Staunton and has had work shown in a variety of local galleries and shows. She emphasizes a relaxed, friendly approach to art making with an emphasis on basic skills.
