For those who have had some experience drawing the figure, this workshop will introduce you to expressive drawing techniques. Each week will focus on different ways to bring your drawing to life using charcoal, ink, mixed-media drawing, acrylics, and collage. Come loosen up and play using the model as a starting point, and then take your work to varying levels of abstraction. Slide shows of contemporary and historical artists will be presented to provide inspiration for new directions in your figurative artwork.
Bring your own materials. Easels, masonite boards with clips and newsprint are provided.
