We wrapped up our summer program with two fun workshops that we’ll continue this Fall. Our Draw With Your Kids workshop took parents and their children through basic lessons on drawing from observation and imagination. In the above photo, parents and kids are shown creating abstract drawings. Our Sketchbook Basics workshop for adults was a success and will also be on the Fall 2012 schedule. Scroll down for highlights of both workshops.
Draw With Your Kids Workshop started with instruction on how to grip the pencil, sketching with lines and shapes, and measuring proportions.
We then moved to abstract drawing as we depicted human traits and emotions by using lines, shapes, patterns, and color. We also had fun drawing with lines and shapes using a wooden dowel extension.
After lunch, we stepped it up a bit and got into drawing the form of a bird by looking for positive and negative space. Then students spent time putting everything they learned into various drawings of their choice.
Simply a wonderful day of drawing with all participants. Looking forward to the next Draw With Your Kids workshop!
We had a couple of Sketchbook Basics workshops this summer and are excited to continue with more sketchbooking this Fall. The 4-hour workshop starts in the studio with an intro to basic sketching techniques and strategies; then we move outside to concentrate on sketching from life as we learn about composition, perspective, and tonal values.
