This is the audit only opportunity. Students will receive access to the class recordings the day after the live class through December 21, 2022. There is no access to the live class to receive critiques but there will be a form you can submit to ask questions. If there's time at the end of any class, Devin will look to the form and respond to submitted questions. In this course students will push their abilities to conceptualize light and form as we model, three dimensionally, and discuss the fundamentals and some of the nuances of how light works as well as how to depict it on a two dimensional surface. During this time students will learn to think about their drawings in sculptural terms by utilizing a conceptual model of light fall which will allow for a greater sense of depth and volume in their finished drawings. By starting without reference, students will learn to render their drawings conceptually. We will begin by working from imagination, picking a direction for a light source and from there we will begin rendering simple geometric forms, three dimensionally. By taking away our subject matter, or visual reference, students will be forced to work out conceptually how their forms need to be relating to the light. As we progress, the projects will begin to include more and more variables, such as cast shadows, objects of different local values put together in one picture and highlights (or specular reflections). This will be a great and unique opportunity, to push our conceptual understanding of light and form. Once students have moved through this series of exercises exploring light and form in pure, conceptual terms, we will return to studies from life with a whole new level of understanding in regards to how to model light and form in a convincing way.
