“Experimental drawing: Exploring Mediums and Marks”
Description: In this one day workshop students will explore new ways to think about drawing, break old habits and begin to embrace the unpredictable side of various traditional mediums. They will refine their own artistic voice through mark making and invent new ways to describe form through the act of drawing; additionally, we will discuss how to resolve an abstracted drawing through unifying composition, value, and color. The final product of this class will be a drawing utilizing multiple mediums with various levels of abstraction or realism, and each student will gain a fresh perspective on the purpose of materials and mediums. This class is intended for intermediate students, but anyone with an open heart and desire to experiment with drawing is welcome to attend. All students are asked to bring in a small meaningful object, from which their drawings will be based on. Masks are required.
Whatever dry medium attendees are accustomed to using, I encourage attendees to bring more than one type of medium (for example, colored pencils and charcoal).
3 or more pencils, a selection of the range of 4h-2b
Faber Castel Eraser pencil
A handful of paper towels
•Attendees can also bring any other drawing mediums they might be interested in trying out or experimenting with. This will be a very open workshop in this regard, I encourage attendees to explore!
