Nature-Inspired Drawings Grades 9-12

About this Course

Students will embark on a journey to rekindle their appreciation for nature and refine their observational skills through immersive drawing experiences. Utilizing both indoor and outdoor spaces, students will begin by drawing from still life setups indoors, featuring flowers, shells, and other objects, before transitioning to outdoor landscapes and nature-inspired scenes. Throughout the course, students will explore fundamental concepts such as line, shape, form, scale, and perspective, while also experimenting with a variety of drawing techniques and mediums including pencil, charcoal, and ink/ink washes. Each session will emphasize warming up, honing observational skills, and providing personalized guidance to facilitate artistic growth. Weather permitting, outdoor sessions will enhance the experience, potentially introducing color into the mix. By the end of the course, students will have produced a collection of drawings from life suitable for inclusion in a college portfolio. (No Drawing Skills Required)
