Foundations Series | Introduction to Drawing

With Valerie Isaacs. Thursday and Friday, July 14 and 15, 9:30am-12:30pm. Members: $140, Non-Members: $150.

This two-day workshop will introduce you to three 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.


Valerie Isaacs shows her work at Hammock Gallery in Provincetown, Tanuki Gallery in Brewster, and Corrigan Gallery in Charleston SC. 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). Exhibiting since 1990, she has shown at a flamenco bar in Seville, a village fair in France, and at a monastery. Her classes in figure drawing, perspective, basic painting, and landscape painting incorporate study of our painting ancestors.
