Drawing Workshop: Tone and Atmosphere

Sign up

Instructor Erik Parra

Join instructor Erik Parra for this 5 week long drawing workshop. Beginning students will have the opportunity to learn about drawing basics and more advanced students to grow their skills. Each week we will focus our attention toward realizing realistic renderings of organic objects, fabric, flowers and baskets etc. Students will use value and tone to create drawings of forms with a sense of space that envelopes those forms. This workshop will focus on using charcoal, powdered graphite and ink wash techniques.
