In this sketchbook-based course, students will practice a variety of drawing and mixed media skills, using physical and abstract prompts, in order to visually and verbally envision and express personal ideas and themes. Students will be introduced to a variety of exercises, and instructed through several projects to help them focus on specific approaches using pencil, pen, marker, paint, templates, collage, and even house hold items to create layers of meaning through colour, texture, composition, image, and words. This course is designed for students who are interested in trying something new with more of a community-support aspect with others in the class and is ideal for both novice and advanced art students. Skills obtained in this course will benefit students pursuing careers in graphic design, advertising, psychology, art therapy, art education, and more.
This class is an online class. As such, students are required to have access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access during class time. Access to a web camera and microphone is recommended. Additional materials may be required.
