Whether you want to begin drawing, rekindle your creative imagination, or expand your drawing skills, Anita's workshop will help you free your ‘inner artist’.

Expressive Drawing/Design in Landscape will guide you through stimulating exercises. The workshop will focus on expressive drawing, a free-form abstract approach that any eager artist can master.

Concepts covered include line, mark, shape, texture and tone. Critical design concepts related to dynamic mark-making will also be discussed and experiences as we draw. Once we initially investigate the expressive drawing concepts, we will put them to practice as we make landscape paintings and drawings.

Be warned! You may never again look at a landscape or drawing the same.
