Beauty and Banality: Drawing In Charcoal
September 29, 2019 – October 5, 2019
This workshop challenges students to document the overlooked aspects of their surroundings in charcoal and make the ordinary become extraordinary. Participants will work both additively and subtractively while learning to draw what they see from life in light and shadow. Materials used include powdered, vine, and compressed charcoal. With an emphasis on nuance, detail and form you will enhance your ability to observe and record and learn to draw nearly any subject matter with greater sensitivity and accuracy. Open to all skill levels, however prior observational drawing experience is helpful.
COURSE FEE: $600
