Look, See, Make: Learn Basic Drawing Skills

July 29, 2018 – August 4, 2018

Greta Songe

In this workshop students discover how to translate real world objects and forms into successful drawings. Tips and tricks on “how to see” help students tap into right brain functioning; which is an essential skill to drawing well. Working from still life set ups, the landscape, photographs, and the figure model, you will explore a range of materials and methods to draw using charcoal, graphite, ink and collage. Students who do not have drawing experience will learn the essentials for learning how to draw. Students with experience can learn methods and approaches to improve upon existing skills. Open to all skill levels.
