Drawing from Photographs

Thursdays, 10/20-11/17/2022, 6:30-9:30pm

Location: John Adams Campus, Room TBD

Instructor: Kelley O’Leary

For five weeks we will learn skills and techniques to draw from photographic imagery. Our meetings will consist of a mix of prompts, experiments, critiques, discussions and presentations. This workshop encourages critical thinking about the history and nature of image-making and we’ll discuss examples from modern and contemporary art. Our projects and assignments will explore drawing from photographs by interpreting prompts and students will be encouraged to explore their personal research, interests and goals in art practice through drawing. 

No previous painting or drawing experience is required.
