Expressive Drawing Workshops with Jody Graham | 2. Shape + Space

Course Overview

A series of monthly workshops to help you understand and learn exciting, expressive drawing skills. Each workshop will focus on a particular area of drawing and artmaking, which will expand your mind, creative knowledge and talent to all the wonderful things drawing can be! Monthly subjects are selected to support individual artistic development and focus on evolving a solid skill base. This course is designed for people who want to learn how to draw and for those that want to dedicate themselves to an ongoing creative exploration of drawing. These one-day workshops are held in a concentrated drawing and painting environment, designed to activate and expand on your passion to draw and create.

This session’s theme | Shape and Space

How to understand and affectively use positive/negative observation skills when drawing.

Positive space refers to the areas in an artwork that are the subjects. Negative space is the area around the subject or areas of interest. Learning to see and consider both negative and positive space helps develops good observation skills, compositions and drawing ability.
