Monday, November 6, 2017 - 9AM-12PM OR Sunday, November 19, 2017 - 1PM-4PM
Location: Margie's Studio - 17 Boxwood Drive, West Caldwell, NJ
This studio workshop is designed for any painter who wants to have a stronger base in the drawing and set up of their paintings. The planning for a painting composition, in addition to the execution of the drawing, are the foundations of a painting. This workshop will reveal some of the rules and tricks that will help artists in this process.
Because this is a “drawing for painters” workshop, we will use only mediums that are compatible with water-based paints or pastels. The workshop will include a power-point presentation on drawing, design and composition, and then go into actual exercises. Over the afternoon, participating artists will create many different drawings, some of which will be developed into painting compositions.
No previous background in drawing is necessary in order to take this workshop. However, participating artists should be familiar with watercolors or water-based paints. Upon registration, a Materials List will be sent out.
Tuition: $60 (or early bird price of $55 if registered by October 15th).
