Mount Holyoke College ARTST-220DP Drawing II: 'Deep Looking' Material Kit for Gina Siepel's Drawing Class

ARTST-220DP Drawing II: 'Deep Looking'  G. Siepel

In this course takes a deep dive into visual perception through the medium of drawing. Geared toward students who took 100-level studio courses remotely, this course will take the practice of observational drawing to the next level, emphasizing engagement in embodied time, space, and community. Using traditional and non-traditional materials and subject matter, we'll delve into the poetics and politics of perception and observation, exploring space, surface, structure, light, and more. This physically engaged course will center mindfulness and hands-on, materially-based methodologies. We will draw from nude models. Relevant historic and contemporary artists and texts will be discussed.
