Contour Drawing VIRTUAL Workshop

Thursday, October 28, 2021
6:00 pm8:00 pm

About the Class:

In this class, students will explore the beauty of contour line drawing, and create three drawings to be displayed in a frame, ready to hang after the workshop. Students will be instructed on how to do a variety of contour drawings based on a wooden artist figure. Each contour drawing technique will first be demonstrated, followed by an allotted time period in which students will replicate the technique within their own drawings. The series of contour drawings will include a general contour line drawing, a continuous contour line drawing, and a blind contour line drawing. The first of which will be created via image tracing; the second and third will be drawn from life (each participant will receive their own wooden artist figure for reference). The three drawings produced will be hang-ready by the end of the workshop for display in the included frame.
