Upcoming courses through Minneapolis College of Art & Design:
Drawing from the Collections | 5-Week Course
Wednesdays, September 6, 13, 20, 27 & Oct 4, 2017 | 6:30 to 9:30 pm
Drawing from the Collection is a way to explore and develop you’re personal drawing practice, which will inform and inspire the creative process no matter your profession or experience level. Students in this class will explore unique collections in the Twin Cities through observational drawing on location. Beyond the still life, students will have the opportunity to create studies of a variety of objects and ephemera. This is a course will connect you with your own hand and your own ability to observe and study details of a given object. Drawing from a collection is a great way to refine how you see, to use drawing as a way to explore, learn and inspire your practice.
Experiential Drawing | 5-Week Course
Wednesdays, October 11, 18, 25, 28 & Nov 1, 2017 | 6:30 to 9:30 pm
Experiential Drawing is a way to explore and develop your personal drawing practice, which will inform and inspire the creative process no matter your profession or experience level. This course is a way to see the city around you as inspiration, to get out of your studio, to pick up a sketchbook for the first time, and to expand your vision while immersing yourself in the creative process.
