Composition and Form through Degas: Form and Contour
- 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
- Melissa Manfull
Join artist Melissa Manfull for a six-session drawing class exploring Degas’s approach to composition and form. Students examine Degas’s many artworks and create their own drawings using experimental techniques and drawing from a live model in one session.
Students explore forms by observing and rendering the edge of Degas’s sculptures using a variety of unusual materials like wire, yarn, tape and torn paper. Contour lines, frottage techniques and positive and negative transfers are explored using graphite and chalk pastel pencils.
- All levels of experience are welcome. Each class is $25 ($20 for members), and space is limited to 20 participants. All materials and admission to the galleries on the day of class are included.
