Course Overview

A series of monthly workshops to help you understand and learn exciting, expressive drawing skills.

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 | Space + Scale

Make interesting compositions and learn how to use the picture plane to create engaging drawings.

  • Composition refers to the arrangement of space and scale within an artwork.
