About This Activity

Dates: Every Tuesday until- Mar 12, 2024 Tuesdays, 4-5:30 PM During this 9-week winter session, the class will focus on contemporary methods and techniques in drawing. Teens will learn how different materials and methods can create different textures, surfaces, and effects in drawing. We will investigate and push the idea of what a drawing is by using methods including erasure, layering, unconventional materials, and 3D drawing, to name a few. Participants will experiment with different ways of creating abstract or non-representational drawings. All levels are welcome. Differentiated instruction is provided to meet each student’s interests, needs, and strengths. This winter class is the second part of a year-long, three-part drawing curriculum where participants learn the basics of drawing as a method to observe, design, and think about the world around them. By the end of the year, students should have a strong arsenal of drawing tricks and techniques in their pockets and an expanded idea of the possibilities and types of drawing that exist in the world today Instructor Bio: Ali Vaughan is a multidisciplinary artist based in the Bay Area who works between sculpture and drawing. Her work investigates the confluence of geology, the body, and the complicated intersections of memory and family history. She has exhibited work at the de Young Museum, the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, the Coulter Gallery, West Magazine, and the Stanford Art Gallery. She was a metal arts resident at the Steel Yard in Providence, RI, and most recently a resident at Radio28 Creative Studios in Mexico City. Ali received was a dual major and received her BA in Art Practice (with honors) and Art History at Stanford University. In her teaching, she believes that artmaking can foster resilience, focus, investigation, and self-reflection, and is interested in allowing students to explore various mediums as means of self-expression, including drawing, painting, collage, and sculpture.
