Introduction to Observational Drawing Two-Day Workshop

February 6 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

‣ Register

Have you ever visited an art museum and wondered why there are so many pictures of fruit, flowers, dead game, or books sitting on tables or nestled in baskets? The tradition of “still life” spans the history of art and across cultures. Join us for two evenings in February to learn the basics of observational drawing using charcoal and pencil. Participants will learn about creating a range of values, simplifying shapes, measurement systems, and positive and negative space to create their image. All materials provided; all skill levels welcome. 

Two Sessions: February 6 and 13
5-8 PM
W&M Campus Center

Workshop fee: Muscarelle Members, W&M Staff, Faculty, and Students $35; Non-Members $50

Steve Prince, Director of Engagement
Sarah Wicker, Community Engagement Specialist

Please note that space is limited to 15 participants.
