Drawing is a form of conversation between the artist, the subject, and the paper or surface. You will learn to draw and to “see” in a new way. This technique teaches how to study shapes, not copy. One of the secrets to drawing is seeing shape relationships, rather than the subject. This workshop is for adults or young people from age 8 up.
