In this 4 week course we will use various materials along with the Principles of design and composition to create collages with exciting imagery and dynamic surfaces. These pieces can stand alone or be used as a springboard for the development of future work.

In this workshop students will learn techniques for rendering the human eye from three views: front on, two-thirds turned, and profile.  Students will be encouraged to view drawing the eye not simply as an almond shaped form, but rather as a three dimensional sphere encompassed by lids, that sit in a recessed area, the eye socket. Students will approach shading and rendering the eye from this perspective and will learn tips on how to draw the iris, pupil, lashes, and brows in an informed and representational manner. Students will also learn a formula for rendering eyes straight on and from profile, in addition to where they should be placed in relation to the jaw and other facial features.
