Figure Drawing Class: A Hallway Exhibition with helpful advice from Teaching Artist Dave Krevolin!
Notes from the Teaching Artist:
The tradition of drawing has been passed down from teachers to students for hundreds of years. The only way to get better is by practicing the skill. Practice in combination with the right guidance can help speed up the mastery of drawing. One of the most helpful tools my teacher Deane G. Keller used was to take home a drawing from each student and return them with an 18”X24” sheet of thoughtful considered adjustments. So it is in this tradition that the sheets which top each drawing is full of pertinent information such as, proportional corrections, anatomical information, as well as aesthetic suggestions: all of which are relevant to improving ones’ drawing.
Working in the same visual language that the students use, allows me to dialogue with each student in a much more specific way. The tracing paper I use makes it easy to see what I mean and where things should go. I hope by exhibiting them together, each student expands their knowledge through viewing others’ adjustments, thus allowing the improvement of their own drawing kills, and ultimately adding to the tradition of life drawing so that I may continue.
