Think Big: Monumental Drawing

June 23, 2019 – June 29, 2019

Cornel Rubino

During this workshop students explore how scale alters the way they view the world by drawing directly from life to retranslate nature and rethink the human condition. In the studio, participants will draw from live models and from their choice of objects from nature. You will explore a variety of wet and dry media and learn skills to tackle large-scale drawings translated from smaller sketches and ideas. Foundation drawing skills are necessary.


Cornel Rubino teaches Visual Thinking at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. He is a winner of the Society of Publication Designers and Communication Arts Award and a longtime contributor to The New Yorker magazine. Rubino’s drawing installations cover topics as varied as loneliness, isolation, cruelty, the disabled and the homeless. His works are found in museums, and in corporate and private collections.
