Getting Your Feet Wet: Drawing for the Non-Artist taught by Monica Fogg

Virtual Event

May 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am May 2, 2021 @ 12:00 pm CDT


Class meets Saturday/Sunday May 1 + 2 from 10am-12pm CT

No experience necessary!

Are you a reluctant creative but desire to learn about basic drawing tools and methods? Perhaps you’ve always wondered why there are so many types of pencils and what the differences are. If  you’ve longed to try drawing but didn’t know where to start, this class is a chance for you to dip your toes in and give drawing a try.

In this workshop, you’ll learn about and  experience ways of using some essential tools for drawing: including graphite drawing pencils, charcoal sticks, sketch pens and kneadable erasers. We’ll de-mystify drawing as we play with line, value (darks and lights) and simple texture in each medium, and find simple shapes within objects. We’ll discuss paper properties, and just for fun, try some white marks on toned paper.

Requires a few supplies. Complete list pending.

“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.”
