Artists in all mediums have a common challenge: creating a work that truly communicates what the artist is trying to express!
How does a landscape, portrait, or other piece of art “speak"? As artists, we can learn to develop our message, create it intentionally, and speak clearly to our viewers through a sheet of paper or a canvas!
Artist and author Sandy Allnock will discuss communication through placement, editing, value, color, and more. “Before and after” examples will show the impact of these artist tools, and will demonstrate in a variety of mediums, including pencil, watercolor, and Copic marker.
Students will be filling their sketchbooks with quick studies from photographs to apply learnings, and interactive reviews of student work will instruct the whole class, too. No “finished” art will be created, but resource photographs will be provided for individual development of artwork following class as desired.
Students of any medium and at any level can benefit from this workshop. It’s recommended that students bring an adventurous spirit: this class will encourage deep thinking and quick sketching!
* Sketchbook: Bring one that’s 9x12 (or larger) - paper should be appropriate for medium you’ll choose to use. Instructor will use a Bee Paper sketchbook (mixed media) but most anything will work for this class.
* Sketching medium: whatever you prefer for sketches of approximately 5x7 size. Soft sketching pencils (6B+), Conté crayons, etc.
* Coloring medium: whatever you prefer to add color to sketches. (watercolor, colored pencil, etc)
