Drawing Gym 4-Day Workshop

Just like training for any sport, you need to stretch your drawing muscles and work your body/brain connection. This workshop with artist B. McCormick will explore several ways to loosen your thought process and just draw. There is no wrong way. There is no bad drawing.
Each day we will spend time ‘Mark Making’ in various ways with no expectations other that having fun and learn different drawing exercises that you can take away with you. We will work with still life and figures. This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn, get a tune-up, or explore drawing exercises in a supportive, non-judgmental and get some serious learning — and serious fun doing it!

We will explore:
Blind contour drawing
Line weight
Positive/negative space
Gesture drawing
Eye/hand connection

For beginners to advanced. At the end of the final day, we will have a mini Gallery "opening" to see the amazing drawings that have been produced over the course of the week.
