Architect/Artist Anita Lehmann is a sought-for-teacher around the world.

This workshop is about drawing, sketching, and painting places and objects; we will begin by observing to learn through drawing. There is a fine granularity and layering to a place or a thing, and drawing the elements requires rigor and attention to detail: awareness. This reigor, focus, and awareness will enhance your skills in the evocative understanding of mark making.

Sketches, paintings, drawings, collages will be collected; and after initial studies are completed, we will continue to create 'evocative' works, furthering concept of 'place and objects'. Tools to be used include paint, pastel, charcoal and graphite.
