Basics Of Observational Drawing
(Drawing on the right side of the brain)
My class is designed for individuals with little or no prior drawing training. The goal of this class is to teach student basic perceptional skills With a shift in perception as taught in this class, drawing is a skill that can be learned by everyone.. This way of processing the visual information can be beneficial in further pursuit in visual arts and beyond.
Painting in the Right State of Mind
This course is designed as 6 sessions painting workshop for students with different skill levels. Familiarity with painting as a medium is required. In class the main attention will be paid to idea of so called â€œspecial wayâ€ of observing and its connection to the processes in our brain. By learning and applying observation skills as a visual tool one can develop its own unique visual language to describe visual reality.
