Black and White Drawing - Course Description

Thursday, August 1, 2013

The purpose of this block is to show the students how tones of light and dark reveal form, and to prepare them for linoleum block printing. This course allows them to spend long periods of time drawing each other's portraits in profile, full face, and ¾ profile, drawing from imagination, and working out tonal plane relationships. Drawings are done in both charcoal and graphite on white paper, and in white chalk and pencils on black paper.
