Smith, Molly Gold_nugget
Basic Drawing

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I can't tell you how meaningful this class was to me. During a time when I was having serious doubts about college, it was something I could look forward to and helped me enjoy my life a little bit more. Molly is simply the warmest and kindest girl you could hope to meet and classes were probing and cheerful, not to mentiont the killer mixtapes she made to play during class. Field trips were always fun and helped to make the classmembers enjoy eachother. The times we met in her apartment were blissful and the food was scrumptious. Though I can't say my drawing abilities were greatly altered (i dont think any class can truly do this) I do now put a great deal more thought into my use of lines and movement and the varied textures I can create. Do what you can to take a class with Molly, shes a real gem.

Workload:

a couple takehome assignments that are later critiqued, a month of drawing in a sketchpad, a final project of your choosing (she tells you what she thinks you'd enjoy working on/ what would suit your style and helps you choose something you love), portfolio
