Charcoal: Expressive Mark Making, A Painter’s Approach To Drawing
July 22, 2018 – July 28, 2018
In this workshop students explore charcoal as the perfect medium for expressive mark making. Your technique may be loose and aggressive in combination with additive and subtractive, using charcoal and erasers, and developing grounds. Students are encouraged to combine charcoal with other media such as conte crayon, spray paint, ink and gesso. You may also explore the different ways mark making techniques can be applied to observational drawing for a fusion of abstraction and realism. Participants will also explore graphite, water-soluble graphite and a few alternatives
