2023 Summer Workshops
Everyone can learn to draw and, with practice, draw well. Drawing is mostly about looking at the world around us and noticing our visual experiences. This summer you can open your eyes and engage in the drawing process as you learn to see in fresh, new ways.
Up until the early 1900’s drawing was taught in elementary schools along with reading and writing. A way to record and preserve the things people saw, drawing also helped with memory and concentration while instilling tranquility and relaxation. Today, drawing can be a wonderful tool for creative expression and an excellent way to balance our stressful, distracted lives.
During this week long class we will work & play with a variety of approaches to drawing as we explore materials and techniques and develop a new language of “seeing”. Open to students with little or no drawing experience as well as those who would like to refresh their drawing skills.
