Class #4

The Art of Drawing

Kay Brathol-Hostvet

July 29 & 30 | 9 - 4

Drawing is the foundation skill for all the visual arts. Develop better drawing skills and gain more pleasure in the drawing process! A lack of drawing skills often relates to a lack of understanding of spatial concepts and problems with 'vision' – the ability to create in artwork what is in one's imagination. Learn to see and measure accurately, work on developing an individual drawing style and ways to loosen up. We'll explore gestural and expressive mark-making, exaggeration or distortion, and co-operative drawing using the basic drawing tools of graphite, charcoal, and pen and ink. This workshop is appropriate for all skill levels with supportive instruction for beginners and challenges for advanced students. A supply will be sent prior to class and is available online at
