This class shall be 7 weeks in length due to a public holiday.
Term 1 theme – Monochrome Draw-ma
For centuries artists have used different shades (tones) of brown or black to create dramatic monochromatic pictures on paper. A monotone or monochromatic palette is one that is made up of different tints or tones of a single colour or black. The addition of white will make a specific hue lighter, the addition of black, darker. Modern artists such as Matisse, Gauguin, Klein or Rothko all experimented with monochromatic colour schemes.
In 2020 Term 1 we will explore monochromatic drawing. The medium we use will range from ink, graphite, to charcoal or pastel, but your work(s) should consist only of shades of a single colour plus white and black or tones of black.*
*All levels of experience are welcome in Linda’s class
