As always, November is full of exciting events at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division. Here’s a quick look at some of this month’s events!
11/6: Learn to Draw: Sighting & Gesture
Recommended for students in FND110 Drawing and FND113 Perspective. Watch demos and get your questions answered about essential drawing techniques. Study and discuss examples to learn how to break forms into two-dimensional shapes.
11/7: Portrait Photography Lecture
Join us to hear Reuben Njaa, senior photography faculty, describe his artistic process as well as the aesthetic considerations for his recent portrait series. Reuben states "I enjoy watching people. I’m always looking for the different quirks people have, but are usually unaware of. It might be the way they grab their ear, touch their hair, or scrunch up their face when they think nobody is looking. To me all these quirky gestures and expressions are part of what make people so interesting for me and those intangibles I've always tried to come away with in my portraits."
11/12: Interior Design for Health and Longevity
Cynthia Leibrock, MA, ASID, Hon. IIDA is an award-winning author, international lecturer, and designer with 30+ years of experience.
