January 27, 2025 @ 9:30 am - January 28, 2025 @ 3:30 pm

Monday & Tuesday, January 27 & 28, 2025 from 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM.
2-day workshop fee: $375 / $300 annual donors

This 2-day course will continue to develop your drawing skills and, of course, will help you with your paintings.  Taking a bit more time to focus on 3-styles of drawing-illustration/rendering, contour line and figure drawing.  Balancing the drawing styles, tight, loose and something in between will help you start to get a feel for your future direction and options.

Drawing Basics on day one will allow a bit more time in certain areas that were touched upon earlier illustration/rendering, contour line and figure drawing.

The second day will be divided up into 3-time sections to give you more time to focus on the 3 directions that are so important to drawing. Or you can just concentrate on one area for the entire second day. Taking more time and getting a bit more detailed in eggs, apples or flowers will help you to develop your eyes and your composition.

Then students will loosen up and investigate contour line drawing a bit more in depth.  And finally, take some time on a figure or figures and start to understand why figure study is such an important part of the ongoing process of drawing. The goal of this workshop is to give you three finished drawings in the day (or one very developed drawing).

The entire class is done with pencil in your notebook/sketchbook or on larger individual sheets of paper or illustration board.  Lots of presentations, demos, and workbook-type exercises to help you understand and comprehend these basics. A great class by itself to feel better about drawing or great to go with Douglas’ landscape/seascape, and floral/still life class/workshops.

The class will meet at 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel.

Call the box office to register: 239-395-0900.
Registration Deadline: 01/20/25
