Being able to draw is both wonderful and relaxing. It makes you look at the world with new eyes. I’ve loved to draw ever since I was a young child and it eventually led me to train as a Scientific Illustrator at Schule fuer Gestaltung in Zurich, Switzerland, as well as getting a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, Netherlands.
This workshop is for everybody, whether you’re a complete beginner or have some experience already. We’ll mainly be working with graphite pencil, but as you work on your project, you can add some color too, with either colored pencils or water colors.
Topics that this workshop will cover are:
– learn about perspective – basic shading and layering techniques with graphite pencil
– light and dark – proportions: get them right
– composition: make your picture interesting
– learn to draw a simple object from nature – draw a simple still life that you arrange yourself
Materials are included in the workshop price. You’ll get a mat to frame your finished project with at the end of the workshop. If you already have graphite pencils, colored pencils or water colors at home that you’d like to use, bring them to the workshop. You can also bring one or several small to medium sized objects that you think you would like to include in your still life. I too will provide an assortment of items that you can choose from.
But above all, come and enjoy learning something new in the unique atmosphere of the Cape Fear Studios!
**50% Refund will only apply if withdrawing occurs by February 8th no refunds will be processed after that date, we thank you for your understanding.
