Using the familiar tools of graphite, pen, and colored pencil, students will explore the expressive possibilities of line, shape, and color. Although all levels of student experience are welcome, this class is focused on the basics of drawing fundamentals. Inspiration for our work will come from the beautiful camp surroundings both inside and outside. Artistic concepts like perspective, proportion, and contour, will accompany our explorations of composition and improvisation. The experience of drawing can delight, inspire, and nourish individuals from all disciplines. Students will leave the workshop with both finished vignettes and tips for continuing the adventure.
