About the event
Is picking up a pencil and drawing what's in front of you an old dream of yours?
Have you always wanted to draw from sight but had no idea how to start?
Are you afraid you are not good at drawing?
Well, you've arrived at the program that will help you conquer your fears and SIMPLY draw.
I've set up four 2.5-hour meetings that include all the knowledge and tools needed to start portraying objects and subjects using graphite. We will work with graphite pencils and get to know how our sight, mind, and hands operate and how to train them in order to see and draw more accurately.
When drawing from life, you develop a new connection to the world around you, and as a by-product, you enrich the world within you.
You are welcome to join all meetings or single ones. Feel free to contact me if any questions arise.
