Wild and Wonderful Expressive Drawing in Mixed Media with Jody Graham

This is a fun and inspiring drawing workshop that will push you into new directions and expand your drawing and mark making skills.

The workshop starts with a series of structured exercises to encourage new ways to approach drawing. Projects explore the power and subtleties that can be achieved in mark making. Drawing methods and ideas taught throughout the class will increase your knowledge about line, tone, composition and what to look for when developing your creative voice. Valuable information about materials used throughout the class will also be detailed.

Student feedback

I took a lot away from Jody’s class. She started off saying that she wanted to add more to our toolboxes, well she added much more than that, she added a whole new vocabulary of mark making
