Over the course of 5 weeks, students will enjoy an interactive experience in this introduction to drawing.

They will be used to create line and tonal drawings through demonstration and practice. Cezanne's technique, old masters techniques, and modern approaches will be explored.  

Students will learn how to draw basic forms to include boxes, cylinders, cones, and ellipses. We will focus on perspective from photographs and life subjects. Subjects of cloth, texture, and ribbon will also be introduced. A final complex drawing of the student's choice will be offered.

NATURE’S PRISM: FROM SEA TO SEA
DONALD A PARKS

Opening Reception
Sunday, February 7th, 3:00-5:00

Dr. Donald A. Parks, an award-winning, internationally collected artist, has spent his working life as a fine artist, freelance journalist, photographer, painter, and teacher of the arts. For him, art is the imagination expressed through the senses into new form. The new subject then becomes the subject matter. He has spent a lifetime exploring Nature’s Prism: From Sea to See. He has explored color and light and how it impacts our perception. Parks has demonstrated outstanding ability and commitment towards the art of painting. To him, creativity is the ability to allow you to make mistakes and then turning them into new creative works of art. His Work has earned him national recognition and has been exhibited at galleries across the nation. During his career, Parks has received numerous awards and honors, including the Delaware 2006 Governor’s Award for the Arts.

After completing his Doctorate in Synesthesia and Art Education, Don joined the faculty of Delaware State University where he taught Studio Art and Art History for 29 years. He retired as Chairperson, Associate Dean and Professor Emeritus in 2013 and moved to Southern Pines with his wife, Barbara. He now devotes most of his time to his family of a daughter, son, and four grandchildren while still finding time to paint at least four days a week. Show will remain open through February 26.
