A 5-Session Drawing Workshop Meeting Every 3 Weeks
Come for 1 class or all 5
I have spent many many hours with pen and paper. Long before the painting, before colors are considered, there is a drawing. I love the drawing process – creating sweeping forms with a few lines, the delicate cross-hatching of the pen, the deep blacks of the ink and the bright whites of the paper. The process of drawing has significantly impacted my creative process and I think it does every artist a world of good to spend some time working with the basic drawing tools like charcoal, pencil, and pen and ink.
In this series of workshops, we will work with a charcoal, pencil, and pen and ink as we work to better understand light and shadow, the interplay of objects, and proportion and dimension. We will also allow ourselves the creative space to find points of departure within our drawings – where we can let our imaginations run free.
More specifically, we’ll discuss and practice such things as using line work to infer volume and texture, making measurements with the eye and not the ruler, and shifting perspectives.
This class is open to artists of all skill levels.

The Still Life
For the subject of our creation, we will work from a still life designed by Michael. The Still Life, a surreal menagerie of forms, is designed to stimulate imaginations while staying true to the real world considerations such as the placement of objects on a plane and within a space, working with perspectives, and concepts of form, volume, and light. At the same time, we will allow ourselves space for points of departure: places where our imagination can take hold and run with an idea or inspiration.
Class Sessions – Times & Dates
Through the course of 5 separate workshops, we will work on various aspects of the creative process through the exploration of various drawing techniques. We’ll work with charcoal, pencil, and pen and ink.
We will meet every three weeks on the following Sundays from 12pm – 4pm at the Hive Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. We will focus on the medium that is noted. but we will be working from the same still life each time. Trust us, you won’t get bored with the still life. It is not a bowl of fruit.
