Intermediate and Advanced Graphite Drawing with Armin Mersmann

For Intermediate and advanced draughtsmen comfortable in their technique. You will be working in graphite, although other drawing mediums will be considered. The focus and intent of an artist’s drawings are fluid and change over time – the end goal is not to execute that “perfect drawing” but grow in technique and concept. The class is both an assignment-based and an open class (drawing what you like), depending on your skill level. Using a series of drawings, you will set personal goals and strive to move your artistic language forward. As a class, we will discuss the strengths and “what ifs” of student work and objectives through engaging critiques; the course will include demos and photoshop analyses as well.
