Expressive Drawing and Printmaking

Arts | Visual Arts
Grade: 9-12
Credits: 1

Using various drawing media such as pencil, charcoal, ink, and non-traditional materials, this semester-long course explores in depth the possibilities of mark-making as personal expression.
Emphasizing skill development through accurate drawing from observation, students will focus on still life, figures, and self-portraiture. Students will also use their honed skills for drawing from the imagination and for conceptual work. Experimentation with various printmaking techniques is the focus of the second half of the course. The students will work toward creating a series of prints expressing their interest in a particular subject.
