Professor Walsh teaches an introductory level drawing class that includes
numerous observational strategies: gesture, contour
organizational line, negative shape, structural analysis, cross contour,
analysis, value, and spatial perception. Along with a foundation of
observation the class examines drawing as expression and
communication by addressing materials, line quality, composition, the
master artists, experimental drawing, and content development in a
series. Students produce a full portfolio of quality drawings and a
personalized sketchbook.Professor Walsh is passionately
interested in how observational drawing introduces specific cognitive
skills that will enhance academic achievement.
"Drawing in my beginning class is a verb, never a noun. You only learn to draw by doing it."
