NCSP 316: Portfolio Prep: Drawing & Painting Inspired by Nature $350.00

Rather than simply drawing from life, students are asked to think critically about subject matter choices and points of view. Beginning with open-ended prompts to help determine personally meaningful or symbolic subject matter for life-drawing, students respond visually by seeking places, objects, and scenes to communicate personal narratives. Students think deeply and critically about how to infuse a work from life with symbolic meaning, mood, and personal style via distinct personal mark-making and expression.
