I invite artists of all levels to explore a wide range of drawing techniques in charcoal using mainly photos as source material. My classes are designed to encourage and support the act of looking and drawing in an enjoyable, easy-going and informal manner.
The 3 day workshop will be structured as follows:
Day 1: Artist’s talk and slide display. Basic observational exercises, up-side-down drawing,
contour drawing, establishment and development of the act of looking. Introduction to medium and materials, charcoal on paper.
Day 2: Introduction to portraiture. From line and contour to shadow and tone, negative and positive space.
Day 3: Landscape, composition, space, perspective.
