Observational Drawing

About Observational Drawing

This course will help participants improve their visual understanding of our surroundings by using both traditional and experimental drawing methods. Students can expect to immerse themselves in the transformation of 3-dimensional subjects into 2-dimensional drawings over a 6-week period.

This course will cover analytical studies, line, tone, form and texture. The subject matter for this course will change every six weeks giving participants the opportunity to attend one block of classes or more. Subjects will include: landscape, portraiture, natural forms, structures and portraiture.

Sharon Thomas is a practicing painter based in Glasgow, lecturing at Glasgow School of Art, represented by Teverina Fine Arts in Italy. Trained in Glasgow School of Art (BFA 2001) and New York Academy of Art (MFA 2004), recent exhibitions include Vokse-Vaerk, Museet For Religios Kunst, Denmark (2015); 21 Revolutions, CCA, Glasgow and Royal Scottish Academy (2011-13); Herstory Portrait, Paisley Museum (2012).
