Observational Drawing: Tools for Seeing and Constructing

Observational Drawing: Tools for Seeing and Constructing 

Instructed by Leah Limpert Walt

Mapping the 3-dimensional into the 2-dimensional takes systems that sync the eye, the hand, and the drawing. During this 3-hour workshop, students will be taught material and observational techniques to help accurately depict the world around us when we draw from life. From the beginning, middle, and finishing stages, we’ll learn how to apply some tools representational artists have used for hundreds of years in their drawing process to create believable realism. Graphite will be the main material used in this workshop.  Graphite pencils and paper will be provided, but bringing your favorite drawing tools is encouraged!
