A 6-Day Online Workshop!

Tuesdays, September 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and  October 6, 6pm-8pm ET via Zoom 

About this Workshop:

This 6-day course in narrative drawing/illustration will challenge students to combine imagination with observation. Classwork involves exercises in composition and design, 1- and 2-point perspective, and an intro to animal anatomy. Students will work from reference material in the form of books, photos, and online resources and learn how to use information from these sources without copying. They will work in a variety of drawing materials including graphite, graphite powder, scratchboard, and pen and ink washes.

Level: All Open to all levels of experience. Note: Students will be creating representational drawings (projects are not designed for abstraction).

Registration has been extended to September 1, 2022 at 12 noon. With your registration confirmation you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any initial handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” guide to using the Zoom video app.

“This was a more technical- and skills-based drawing class than I have experienced before. Exercises felt thoughtfully planned and related to the lessons.”
