Mixed Media, is a two-day drawing workshop that explores how to create the illusion of form, texture, and space using a limited to full palette in Pastels and ink.
This workshop develops the skills of drawing from direct observation including form and texture using mixed media from the still-life. Emphasis is on developing a sense of structure and visual texture using value and color.
Both traditional and innovative approaches are explored, with the intent of an in depth analysis of the common perception of an image and learning to “see.” It introduces students to concepts, tools, and techniques of representational drawing. Principles of composition, balance, line, texture, value, and color are introduced through progressive studio assignments using ink and pastel.
