< Back to Workshops

Thursday and Friday, July 13 and 14, 9:30am-12:30pm

2 sessions | $140 for members $150 for non-members

This two-day workshop will introduce you to four basic drawing skills.

Contour drawing will sharpen your powers of observation and help you to understand volume and character. Seeing through a grid will relate 3-dimensional space to 2-dimensional paper. Observation of positive and negative shapes will help students to see proportions and relationships, and put them on paper. Thinking of boxes and planes will make light and shade easier. Materials included in cost of workshop.

She studied Architecture at Penn State, drawing and etching in Spain, and painting at the Fleisher Art Memorial (Philadelphia) and with Douglas Balentine (Charleston SC).
