Drawing Studio Online Intensive July 13-17, 2020

Solid observational drawing skills are key to every art and design discipline. This program moves the student into a more volumetric understanding of drawing, and includes emphasis on drawing fundamentals, and formal composition and design. 

THIS IS A GOOD CONCENTRATION IF YOU: Get inspired by the work of great masters. Sketch and doodle in class. Think abstractly. Want to build your portfolio, but aren't sure which major is right for you.

Detailed Description

Students and professionals alike are sometimes challenged by their ability to quickly indicate visual ideas in an easily understandable form. Drawing Studio Online Intensive is designed to provide students with the skills they need to create original and compelling works of art. 

This one-week course will help you be prepared for art and design college.In this course, you will:

  • Develop design and drawing skills
  • Focus on fundamental observational drawing skills
  • Create work for your college admissions portfolio
  • Meet nationally known artists 
  • Learn under the direction of CCS Product Design faculty

The Drawing Studio Online Intensive lead instructor will be David Flaugher, CCS Foundation Drawing Faculty. Flaugher received his BFA from the College for Creative Studies in 2008, attended the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture in 2010, and received his MFA from New York University in 2013. He has exhibited throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. 

Each morning and afternoon, classes will connect via Zoom sessions that will be used for small-group live video chats, demos, and lectures that teach fundamental observational drawing techniques that are vital for a winning portfolio. You will work on assignments independently, develop your visual vocabulary, and create portfolio-quality work. You will also have one-on-one sessions with your professor and portfolio guidance from an admissions counselor. See tentative schedule for reference.

Special guest speakers will check in with the group remotely throughout the week. Students will have the amazing opportunity to interact with nationally known painters and muralists. The week will culminate with individual portfolio reviews with your professor and admissions professionals.
