SEEING the Art Institute of Chicago: The Collection as Inspiration - Intensive

Using the Museum of the Art Institute as a subject, you will draw inspiration for your drawings and examine composition, perspective, and gesture. Class sessions will begin with a demonstration and discussion of one approach to drawing after which the class will visit the Art Institute of Chicago and look carefully at specific works that relate to the theme. Morning drawing sessions will be directed. In the afternoons, students will work independently and develop their drawings or find a new subject in the museum's collection to which they can apply principles introduced earlier in the day. Class sessions will conclude as a group to share drawings and report on the experience. The instructor will support students individually and in small groups as they work. Previous drawing experience is beneficial.

All summer 2024 1-week intensives are offered in person. Space is available in campus housing: $530/week for a single room. 

Registration deadline: July 22 at noon
