Painting / Drawing: Gesture & the Human Figure with Nameer Davis aims to help students develop a vocabulary of drawing and/or painting gestures in a variety of media and apply it to the figure in order to renew approaches to figure drawing and painting. Classes will consist of process driven drawing / painting exercises and lessons with a life model. Conventional formats like writing, typing, touchscreen and other instrumental interactions require particular gestures of hand and finger movements – these actions and others will be considered in developing a vocabulary of drawing / painting gestures. The system of marks developed will be applied to paintings and drawings in the presence of a life model.
