Chances are your sketchbook is full of quick ideas and experiments, alongside more studied works.  This class includes the same, quick exercises as well as more developed compositions.  The art elements of line, shape, color, texture, and value provide the framework for this 5-week sketchbook class.  Each week one art element is explored.  You will draw from your own still life set-ups, from houseplants or flowers, photos, video, as well as some abstraction.  Drawing media includes: conté crayon, charcoal, opaque watercolor, and some collage materials.

This is the first section of a two-part course.  Some drawing experience is recommended. This course aims to expand your expressive visual vocabulary and encourage a dynamic sketchbook practice.

Barbara Fugate is a painter committed to making drawings and paintings that express life rather than imitate it. Discovering and experiencing “how things are” rather than “what they are” continues to inspire and drive Fugate’s art and art instruction. Fugate received a BFA from Western Kentucky University and a MFA in painting from Miami University of Ohio. Fugate has taught expressive drawing and painting classes and workshops in Seattle, as well as international workshops for over 25 years. Schools where Fugate has taught include Gage Academy of Art, Seattle Pacific University, Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts (Victoria, BC), La Conner Art Workshops, as well as her own Seattle Weekend Art Workshops. Fugate’s artwork is published in “The Best of Drawing and Sketching” by Terry Sullivan, “Landscape Painting” by Mitchell Albala, and Margaret Davidson’s book, “Contemporary Drawing”.
