This is a drawing class for those of you who would like to learn the secrets of this wonderful medium, and those of you who may have some experience but want to know more. This class will teach you to the difference between vine charcoal and compressed black and white charcoal. Each class will start with seeing samples of art created with charcoal and I will teach you various techniques, including how to make different marks: linear or side strokes; ways to blend white and black charcoals on various supports, and different techniques. Charcoals are very versatile and you can create simple or complex drawings. Erasing is easy, so this is also a great class for beginners. You may want to wear clothing you do not mind getting dirty. Class limited to 7, minimum 3 students.
