Drawing exclusively in the galleries, this course will concentrate on practicing the basic fundamentals of line, gesture, shading, texture, color, proportion and composition. Throughout the course students will combine and build upon these drawing fundamentals, and learn to practice a variety of techniques while exploring different media. Students will draw inspiration from the diverse array of artworks and explore themes of the MFA collections.

Students are responsible for providing their own supplies. View the supply list.
