What you'll learn in this drawing class:

SEEING the Art Institute of Chicago: The Collection as Inspiration

This course is about learning to see using the wonders of the Art Institute of Chicago as subject and the activity of drawing as the tool to learn to see. Each day will explore a new perspective - the figure, composition, perspective, and gesture.

Class sessions will begin in the studio 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 can choose to stay in the same gallery and develop their drawing or roam the museum to find a new subject to which they can apply principles introduced earlier in the day. Class sessions will conclude in the studio to share drawings and report on the experience. 

The instructor will move through the galleries to talk individually with students as they work. Previous drawing experience is beneficial.

A leader in educating artists, designers, and scholars since 1866, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) offers nationally accredited degree programs as well as Continuing Studies programs for adults and children, ages 4-18. Considered one of the most influential art and design schools in the world, SAIC has continuing studies programs available to all skill levels.
