Drawing Inspiration from the Figure

This workshop will explore the processes and materials used in traditional and nontraditional figure drawing. Students will work from the nude model, learning basic-to-advanced drawing techniques with wet and dry materials and experimenting with a variety of papers, tools, and media. Individual meetings will help students define their artistic goals and advance their problem-solving skills. We’ll also spend time sketching outdoors and gathering inspiration from Penland’s beautiful grounds. All levels.
