This two-day workshop is designed for both intermediate-level artists to revisit and firm up their drawing foundations and for raw beginners to get off on the right foot toward sketching and drawing independence.
Through demonstrations, hands-on practicals, and PowerPoint examples, participants with a few basic drawing tools will (re) discover the drawing process, value, line, shapes, light and shadow, negative space, and proportion.
Emphasis will be on the reasons behind the basics, the problems of converting a three-dimensional world into a two dimensional medium, the interplay of the organics of graphite and paper texture, and pencil control to achieve highly defined details and effects that enhance the appearance of depth.
