IN-PERSON / Wednesdays, July 7 - July 28

Improvisational Drawing

Learn to make your drawings pop off the page using graphite, charcoal, and white-on-dark media. Exercises in these four sessions are designed to improve drawing and observation ability in a low-stakes, relaxed environment. Emphasis will be on process more than product, but bold media, like pen and charcoal, plus pops of color, will help to produce surprising results. Beginners are welcome, as well as seasoned artists looking for dedicated drawing time, ideas, and feedback.




Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00pm. July 7 – July 28, 2021.
