WEEKEND TWO (2-day): June 29 – 30, 2019 Classes run from 9 am – 4 pm each day and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
All working artists struggle to be more creative. This workshop will be 2 days of intensive life drawing with practical solutions that will help any artist draw better.
Use unique working exercises to explore the hand, the eye and the brain. Is accurate vision possible? Learn about a breakthrough study of how and why the brain distorts sight. The physical act of seeing and: the nameless human body. There will be ample time for free drawing as well.
This course is based on Heather’s book, The Creative Eye, along with newly added research.
Rather than being good at drawing, be willing to take risks, that is the important thing. Learn that you can make new choices about what it means to pay attention.
All levels welcome
