Drawing workshop for beginners

Why Attend?

This workshop is geared for beginners only (adults only please)
Over the two days I will introduce the basic techniques and structure of drawing and sketching (tone, line, form, volume, proportion, perspective and composition.).

A bit about drawing:

I firmly believe that drawing is an artist’s best friend. Drawing gives us the foundation on which to build our art.

1. We draw or sketch to put down an idea, record a scene on our travels.
2. Using drawing as a study to prepare for other projects such as painting helps solve problems that might be very difficult to correct once you’ve started painting.
3. Doing drawings as fully developed works of art.

Sketching or drawing train the eye and hand to see, observe and record. To an artist, drawing is a very useful tool indeed.

The Fee

The workshop costs $180.00 inclusive of materials specified above.
