Drawing on Our Surroundings
In this objective drawing class, participants explore various subjects—such as models, outdoor scenes, and even each other—from an observational perspective. Using traditional drawing materials, they focus on essential principles, including light and shadow, line, composition, gesture, proportion, and mark making. This workshop is open to artists of all levels, providing a unique opportunity for emerging artists to learn new skills, such as observational drawing. For experienced artists, it is a chance to revisit drawing and observation, enhancing their artistic practice. In either case, the emphasis remains on drawing as a fundamental aspect of art creation.
