CLASSICAL FUNDAMENTALS OF GREAT DRAWING

with Charity Hubbard

The focus and study in Charity's workshop will be on key foundational skills that every artist and painter should have. While students will not be painting in this workshop, it will be geared towards drawing from life AND incorporating integral concepts of solid drawing which translate to solid painting.

 

Whether you are a beginner who understands that it is important to start your painting journey on solid footing or are a painter wanting to gain focused technique to make your paintings more solid and eye-catching while honing your drawing skill, you will gain much from this workshop. Students will come away with solid understanding and newly-gained skill in drawing from life with a decidedly improved ability to see unified shape masses that bring strength to drawings and paintings. The behavior of light and shadow will be covered as well.  

 

Charity has been a classical art instructor for 14 years and is experienced in helping students move their skill growth forward in a way that is practical yet inspiring. Helping artists grow in skill is Charity's passion, and she is experienced in accessing where each particular student is in their journey to help them grow forward.  

 

Charity will want you to provide your email address as soon as possible so that she can send you online lessons ahead of time. She also hopes to communicate with you about your goals and skill level ahead of the workshop if possible. For more about Charity, visit www.charityhubbard.com.
