Drawing Workshops at the Arts Council, Rock Hill 2018/19
Workshop info: In connection with my exhibition titled 'Paintings and Drawings' at the Dalton Gallery, Center for the Arts, Rock Hill, South Carolina in March and April 2019 , I am offering workshops in drawing as a lead in to the 2 workshops during the exhibition. (Please see below for details and dates).
All drawings will be made from observation using simple 3-dimensional Subject matter and basic drawing implements. Participants may take any of the workshops and materials purchased will cover all workshops, with a few additions which I will supply. Previous experience not necessary as teaching will be geared towards beginners, intermediate and the more advanced draughtsmen.
To sign up go to www.yorkcountyarts.org then 'tickets' and scroll down til you find my workshops. Workshops are $60 each and are two and a half hours duration. You may sign up for as many as you want to, they are all different and 'stand alone', meaning, if you can only attend one Contour drawing session instead of two, for example, no problem!

Tonal drawing introduces participants to various shading techniques in order to begin to build a volumetric, 3-D effect. This may used in conjunction with Contour or Gesture drawing.
Tuesday Jan 15 10 – 12.30 Workshops 7 and 8 Thursday Jan 31 “
Erasure drawing increases energy and spatial depth in a drawing by applying layers of media, which are intentionally erased and reapplied. A second technique using erasure uses a subtractive approach with tone.
These workshops will combine many of the techniques and media used in the previous workshops, but may also be taken on their own. Collage elements and gesso will be introduced to extend creative, expressive possibilities.
