Today I sat in a class called ‘Drawing for Designers’ a drawing class held at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. They prioritize full-intake for senior students, so I probably won’t get in for the full term, but sitting in one lass was already a great experience. She would encourage these three-four minute drawing lessons with charcoal on easel - and the way she read our images and lines was really insightful. These are my attempts at landscape from images she projected across the room walls. When she explained the course it sounded like so much fun, but what can you do. I feel lucky to have had a taste of it. It was my first time with charcoal, working with such an emotive fine artist and using such huge paper. I’ve always loved the peace drawing gave, charcoal does the same but at a different, interesting level. I’m interested to see where this will all take me. Tomorrow is the end of a first week, it’s already been quite a ride.
