Using plant life as the basis for experimentation and documentation, this class gives students an opportunity to explore various drawing techniques and media based on the natural world.
We will draw, paint, use mixed-media and printmaking to create informed mark-making, solidify sketching and journaling skills, and give form to your observations. Subject matter will include plants, animals and objects.
Field trips are planned to visit extraordinary and diverse environments—to explore place, subject matter, and art-making techniques. Places to visit: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Japanese garden at the Museum of Fine Arts, Harvard Museum of Natural History, classroom at Massachusetts College of Art.
