Drawing is the foundation skill for all the visual arts. In this workshop, you will develop better drawing skills and gain more pleasure in the drawing process! A lack of drawing skills often relates to a lack of understanding of spatial concepts, and with problems with artistic ‘vision’ – the ability to create in artwork what one is expecting or imagining. In addition to technical skills development, work on developing an individual drawing style and ways to loosen up. We will explore gestural and expressive mark-making, exaggeration or distortion, and co-operative drawing using the basic drawing tools of graphite, charcoal, pen and ink. This workshop is appropriate for all skill levels, with supportive instruction for beginners and challenges for advanced students. Some materials provided; see supply list for required materials.
