Drawing & Sketching

 

For an artist, drawing is a source of joy.

 

From simple, quick sketches to larger, more finished works, drawing is a delight for most visual artists. The Drawing and Sketching Workshop will, first of all, be fun!

 

The workshop will explore a range of drawing techniques and materials, working both outside and indoors. Classes within the workshop will help artists with skills such as how to "reduce" a complex scene into simple compositions, how to "distill" a complex subject into a form that visually describes the subject to a viewer, creative license in the composition, how to work in values (shades of gray) and in line,
and more.

 

During the week, artists will create a range of works, from simple, quick sketches to complex drawings.

 

Any artist who likes to draw is welcome and should enjoy the workshop. There will be no competition and no judging of work. Drawing should be a source of joy for artists and the classes will be fun and relaxing. No artist, from beginner to advanced, should have any fear of attending the workshop! We will have a good time.

 

Materials will be provided, but artists are encouraged to bring supplies they normally use if available.

 

The workshop will be taught by David Harper, an artist from the United States. As a child, David was

always the one who could "draw." He was trained in fine arts and graphic design, and earned a Bachelor

of Fine Arts degree in design. He has been a professional graphic designer for 44 years, but has never lost his love of drawing and painting—especially drawing. It is, for him, a source of delight, something he hopes to pour into every class.

 

David loves his family, and REALLY LIKES good coffee. He likes big dogs, art museums, fishing and the outdoors. He also loves being an artist, and enjoys the beauty in simple things.
