In this class, students learn a variety of approaches to making pencil drawings from photographs. Participants have the opportunity to work from chosen or provided image materials. In addition to covering the fundamentals of drawing and techniques for working with graphite, students in this class will consider how mark, scale, negative space, and value can transform photographic references through the process of drawing and how creative representational choices change meanings of images. The class will begin with shorter drawing exercises, and move towards a final project of the student’s choosing.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
