Continuing Education

Drawing and Painting

Date: 9:00am PDT July 8 Location: Lewis & Clark Graduate School, Rogers 217

Lewis & Clark Graduate School, Rogers 217

Georgia O’Keefe once said, “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for.” She is not alone in feeling this way. Humans have communicated through images for thousands of years; from cave paintings to comic books, there exists a very human need to draw, paint, and make marks.

This class will cover a wide variety of drawing and painting techniques and media. There will be demonstrations, discussions, and time spent working on site in the gardens of Lewis & Clark College.

Students will leave with new skills, a small series of work, a sense of community, and a better understanding of the importance of visual communication in contemporary society.

Students will receive a materials list prior to the course start date.
