“Drawing is a skill that can be learned. The best way to understand something is to draw it. Besides direct observation, there is photo referencing as well as the computer. Often in my own work, I use all of it in order to fully understand the subject,” shares artist Ann Guiliani. In this class, Ann will discuss exploring shape through tones and values, exploring line for using sighting skills and perspective, and encourage experimenting with combining materials and techniques.

Drawing can be intimidating; therefore, Ann uses any method to bring across an idea or concept. In this six-week class, she will encourage a more fearless approach to drawing, as well as build a foundation of aesthetic appreciation. The course will tailor to the class and the individual students’ needs and interests. Exploring all kinds of media and techniques in drawing is encouraged. The objective is for the student to find a method or material they like best. Media such as graphite, charcoal, conte, chalk, paint, paper, ink, and brush are all encouraged, even the use of unconventional media as well as combining media.

Students are asked to keep a sketchbook they use on a daily basis.

Suggested materials list. Ann will also have supplies available for purchase:

  • Small sketchbook 9x12" or smaller
  • Small notebook note taking
  • Newsprint pad 18x24"
  • All-purpose white sketch pad 18" X 24" 80 lb or more
  • Graphite pencils HB, 2B, 4B, 6B, and E
  • Conte crayons black, sepia, and white

Ann Guiliani has two master’s degrees: one in Painting and Art Education from New York University and another in Printmaking and Visual Design from the University of Massachusetts. Ann moved from West New York, New Jersey to Cape Cod with her husband and taught at Cape Cod Community College from 1984 to 2000. Versed in so many media, she taught all the art offerings, even Graphic Design which she still works in from time to time. In 2000 her life was altered in caring for her parents as well as her husband with frequent trips between Cape Cod and Florida. The frequent changes in environment inspired a number of major bodies of work. Her six-foot drawings of “Palms in the Wind,” her Paintings of Water; and a series of Drawing From a Moving Car, all challenge moments in time where movement becomes an essential element of the work. Ann is an emerging artist, who has garnered awards both nationally and internationally. She has had five solo shows since returning to Cape Cod in 2015.
