He Who Has Eyes to See: Drawing From Life

Presented at:
2018 SCL Annual Conference

ABSTRACT:

People say it all the time: “I can’t even draw stick figures!" Perhaps you’ve said this yourself. Perhaps you’re even an art teacher! Many people are intimidated by the idea of making drawings – the blank page induces fear! Drawing must be approached with confidence because it is the foundation of all the visual arts from painting and printmaking to sculpture. We'll put the fear of drawing to rest in this workshop. Participants will observe drawing demonstrations, learn how to break down complex objects into manageable pieces and develop the skill of really "seeing" a subject before translating it to the paper.
