A 5-Day Online Workshop!

Wednesdays, January 26–February 23, 10am-1pm ET via Zoom

About this Workshop:

Drawing is fundamental to the art making process. Whether it’s a quick sketch to tease out ideas, a study to be translated into another medium, or a work of art in its own right, drawing can help us understand ourselves and the unique way in which we see the world. The goal of this workshop is to use drawing as a means of self-expression. While the principles of drawing will guide our journey, we will use exercises and prompts to extend our ways of seeing and working. As we experiment with line, mark-making and composition, you will be encouraged to go beyond what is visible and wade into the unknown. We will work with water-soluble graphite, a versatile tool that allows for soft washes, bold inky marks and everything in between.

Level: All levels welcome.

Your Instructor:

Contemporary artist Priya Vadhyar‘s paintings manifest the meeting of the particular and the universal, knowing and not-knowing, thinking and no mind. Her work embodies the interplay of spontaneity and restraint, the discovery of unexpected visions, contradictions and many horizons which reveal unity amidst the illusion of boundaries and multiplicity. Priya’s work has been exhibited internationally at venues including Seacourt Print Workshop (Bangor, Ireland), Pyramid Atlantic Art Center (Hyattsville, MD), BlackRock Center for the Arts (Germantown, MD), Carroll Community College (Westminster, MD) and The Drawing Studio (Tucson, AZ).  Learn more about her work at www.priyavadhyar.com.

“”It absolutely renewed my interest in drawing and inspired me to think about drawing and painting in new ways.”

—Workshop Attendee


“I really appreciated the philosophical emphasis, the thought-provoking poems and quotes, and the examples were often very inspiring … there was a lot more than just drawing in the class, and that also exceeded my expectations.”

—Workshop Attendee
