Inspired by Valentine’s Day and ideas of romance, promise, love and fidelity—and the flip side of these expectations—participants will be working from prompts to create loose, fast drawings. Based on memory, imagination, word-association and a selection of Valentine’s Day-inspired photos, participants will be encouraged to let go and approach drawing as fearlessly and as joyfully as possible. Led by faculty member Peter Hristoff (BFA 1981 Fine Arts). Register here to receive a Zoom link.


Suggested supplies: Paper and drawing media of choice.


Please note: The prompted images maybe layered or drawn on individual sheets of paper, based on the participant’s paper stock and aesthetic decisions. A minimum of 50 sheets of paper (any size) or a fresh sketchbook is suggested. There also may be some suggestive/sexual content.


Recommended: Any drawing materials that allow for quick, loose, dark lines such as brush and ink, oil sticks, Ebony pencils or soft graphite crayons or sticks. Color optional, but encouraged; most drawings are timed at one minute each. The session is indeed a marathon and also a love note to the act of drawing. Open to all levels, from the fearless beginner to the professional artist.
