Second term: January 20-March 16

Saturday, January 20: Drawing With Our Own Body
Drawing as a footprint or a record of body movement. We will be using body parts other than our hand to draw. Concepts like symmetry and chance will come into play.

Saturday, January 27: No Outlines! Figure and Ground
The challenge will be drawing figures, such as volumes, without any outline. For that, we will experiment with different drawing tools: cotton, strips of cloth, graphite powder.

Saturday, February 3: Drawing in Groups
New mediums for your drawings… Finishing somebody else’s work… Working in teams and communicating effectively to accomplish your drawing goals… Fun guaranteed!

Saturday, February 10: Water and Mountains: An Introduction to Chinese Painting
Shan shui (literally, water-mountain) is a style of traditional Chinese painting that depicts scenery or natural landscapes. We will work with Chinese painting materials and techniques.

Saturday, February 17: Create Your Own Tools
We will create homemade tools for drawing: pencil and brush extenders to work from a distance; mechanical gadgets like spirographs and engines…

Saturday, February 24: Scissor Drawing
Let’s explore other ways of drawing: cropping and trimming with scissors, exploring the possibilities and limitations of collage.

Saturday, March 2: Drawing Mazes
We will learn all about mazes and we will draw our very own labyrinth.

Saturday, March 9: Three-dimensionalityOur drawings will turn into three-dimensional objects by cutting or by folding—as in the Japanese art of origami.

Saturday, March 16: Let Trees Draw
Is it possible to cooperate with a non-human being to work on a drawing? Can trees draw? How do they do it? And if so, who drawing’s author?
