Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 12 students
Please request supply list

In this extended, students at all levels will investigate how to convey the realness of a body’s motion through the use of line and the way materials are applied. The instruction will focus on achieving a drawing with momentum, fluidity and presence, weight and movement of a body. Our model will have knowledge of dance and we will study how to capture the gestures and action in front of us. I welcome students at all levels and will guide the whole class through a refresher focused on gesture, skeletal structure, muscle & muscle tension and material-application through various drawing techniques. In the beginning we will start with dry media, move to inks and complete the course with watercolor. Come, have fun and learn! Instructor talks and demonstrations will be interspersed throughout the workshop. Open to all levels of experience.
