CREATIVE JUMP-IN: Beginning Drawing
with Jim Caldwell
Thursday, August 12, 2021 - 9:00 AM
Put away your smart phone and get out your sketch book. In this class, you will develop your ability to see and explore the importance of drawing. We will start each day with a slide show of inspirational drawings and end with a review of everyone’s work. We will explore graded tones, line, negative space, perspective, and shadowing. You will come away with more confidence to draw and release your creativity.
Age 18 and older, beginners welcome!
This 4-day workshop will take place Mon–Thu, Aug 9–12, from 9am–12pm daily.
