Weston: Drawing for Composition
Drawing for Composition is a 6 week (7 lessons) workshop that I’ve taught in the US and in Europe. It gives students the object drawing skills needed to later excel at compositional techniques used by contemporary Illustrators, entertainment artists, and landscape artists. Students learn drawing methods that allow for differences in style, that cover a variety of objects and allow students to draw anything they may encounter in reference photography or out in the world. We discuss drawings' role as a compositional tool throughout the workshop. Students receive individual video critiques on their homework assignments.
