"Lisa's classes excite and inspire me. I look forward to each one. She is an incredibly gifted teacher meeting students' needs at their individual skill levels providing both encouragement and motivation. I am very happy with the progress I have been able to make in just a few classes. I can't recommend Lisa's classes highly enough." ~ Lori Green
Charcoal, graphite or pastel
A drawing has the potential to capture so much more than what we see. Every mark communicates the energy of the mark maker. Embrace the marks and lines that demonstrate the process and the search for form. Learn how to use line and mark to create expressive drawings that have energy and feeling.
Everyone will be met where they are and will receive the individual feedback needed to improve. This workshop includes live demos, individual instruction during work sessions and structured assignments that will build with each lesson. No prior drawing experience needed.
May 4 - June 8
Condensed 3 week workshop
Drawing is a skill that can be developed like any other. It requires patience, practice and keen observation skills. In this course you will learn how to measure shapes and observe the value relationships needed to create a convincing illusion of light on form. This condensed 3 week course is structured to build a foundation of drawing skills in charcoal that can then be applied to a variety of media. Surprisingly, the process of moving charcoal around is similar to painting. Developing a piece from general to specific will improve your skills in painting and composition as well.
No drawing experience is needed. Everyone will be met where they are and will receive the individual instruction needed to improve. This workshop includes live demos, individual instruction during work sessions and structured assignments that will build with each lesson.
