Carl Purcell Workshop in October 2014


Most drawing classes revolve around drawing items - how to get the shape right, how to shade effectively etc. This workshop will focus instead on turning drawing into a tool for exploring a subject's potential for a successful painting.

You will explore how to extract the major linear directions in a subject and use them to guide the viewer around the format. You will use drawing to explore patterns of value, patterns that explain forms more than details.

The atmosphere will be relaxed and informal and you will be encouraged to let go and have fun with the subject. Drawing can either be slavish copying, or a fun tool for exploring new things. Paintings done from these kinds of drawings will always be simpler and better. This may be a turning point for you in your art.


When: Thursday thru Saturday Oct 9-11th, 2014.
The cost of the workshop is $335 for members and $360 for non members.
