Saturday, March 31st 2-5pm

Transform drawings with drawing strokes PLUS brush strokes!

Add options to your drawing repertoire in this three-hour workshop. We will explore use of water-soluble drawing materials, using 3 basic tools: water-soluble graphite pencil, water-soluble chunk graphite, and a water-soluble carbon disk… plus a brush and water.

We will explore how achromatic (without color) drawings can be transformed with the addition of a few simple brush strokes, bringing a painterly aspect to a drawn piece.

There will be demonstrations, as well as time to practice and explore within a group environment.

Bring: open mind, a sense of adventure, supplies

Prerequisites: NONE. This workshop is very appropriate for first time creators as well as those with previous experience. Each will benefit from individual attention and guidance.

Monica Fogg is an artist (watercolor, encaustic, acrylic, woodcut, and lithography) and designer or fabricator (Prince, Lorie Line, Disney, Guthrie Theater, Minnesota History Center and others). She has taught courses in watercolor, drawing, painting, color theory, design, visual studies and art history. She currently teaches in the College of Design at the University of Minnesota.

My personal work is informed and inspired by forms found in nature. I consider and experience the foundations of the earth as symbolic of the ‘grounding’ of spirit. Representation is distilled to form, movement, essence. The process is a dance between concept and emotion.”
