What's Included

taught by Alan Prazniak We will start with a conversation about the lives of paleolithic humans accompanied with handouts of the cave drawings of Lascaux, France. Large pieces of brown paper will be crumpled and weathered to mimic a rock surface. The contours of the wrinkles will be used as guides to draw simplistic animal/nature forms. An emphasis is placed on mark making, gesture, form, and messiness (we are pretending to be cave-people after all!). This class is part of an ongoing History of Drawing Series, where students walk through different eras of drawing by creating their own artwork.
