This course aims to deepen your understanding of space and structure in drawing, through two dimensional and three dimensional approaches. The course starts with learning and employing different techniques and strategies to create impressions and levels of space in drawing, such as geometric perspective, and layering techniques. You will also explore movement through space, scale and mass and develop large scale atmospheric spatial drawings from off-site drawing work in the cavernous and structural space of a church.
We will then work with shadows and lit structures and explore alternative approaches to drawing including wire drawings in space, ‘drawings without paper’, drawing in three dimensions and drawing as a spatial intervention. Each session will be carefully contextualised with the work of relevant artists. The course is taught by artists who work across 2 and 3 dimensions.
