COLOR, ARTS 210
June 14-July 9
This course attempts to demystify the study of color. Working with various two-dimensional media,we explore the characteristics and potentials of color through careful observation and comparison. In a series of interrelated exercises we examine and define hue, value, and intensity and the ways in which colors interact. Emphasis will be on cumulative studies, balancing an intellectual experience with the intuitive experimentation. For more information & to register, visit the Wellesley College Summer School website.
DRAWING I, ARTS 109
July 12-August 6
An introduction to the fundamentals of drawing with attention to the articulation of line, shape, form, gesture, perspective, and value. Studio work introduces a range of traditional drawing tools and observational methods while exploring a variety of approaches to image making and visual expression. In-class drawing exercises and weekly homework assignments address a range of subjects with brief attention given to the human figure.
