Designed to push the boundaries of traditional mark making, Drawing Now will open advanced creative paths of process and materials while expanding the language of drawing. Work with a variety of conventional media and unconventional materials, such as Plexiglas, vellum, cold wax, and natural pigments, as you focus on experimentation and produce complex artworks. Explore various ways of seeing—both perceptual and conceptual—as you play with abstraction, work in a series and incorporate scale and layering techniques.
