This workshop is designed for people who are new to drawing from life, people who believe they “can’t” draw, and those who just want a fresh perspective.
This six-week course will provide a friendly environment in which we will begin learning to draw what we see. We will employ both traditional drawing exercises and experimental approaches, and we will consider basic drawing concepts such as space, weight, line, shadow, movement, and composition. Looking at examples from the art of diverse eras and cultures, we will explore how we perceive, interpret, and choose to represent the world around us. Subjects will include still life, portraits, and landscape (the ocean view from the VAC!). We will experiment using different types of pencils, charcoals, pens, inks and papers. This workshop is designed to be a welcoming space in which everyone can explore and learn from one another.
