Rendering the Tangible: Drawing from Life
Simon Haas, Liz Ferrill
Participants allow themselves the time, space, and guidance to examine and respond to what they see in this drawing workshop open to artists of all skill levels. Each day, they embark on the fascinating journey of taking the time to make drawings from a live model, still life, personal objects/relics, and our natural surroundings, formally approaching drawing through exercises in line, contour, negative/positive space, value studies, and composition. Conceptual intent is also explored through choosing personal subject matter and discovering ways to best articulate through the immediate medium of drawing. Liz Ferrill will be present for the entire duration of the workshop; Simon Haas will join daily from 9am – 3pm.
