Metamorphoses: Drawings by Erin Anfinson, Kristi Hargrove, Mark Hosford, and Chris Scarborough on view in the Conte Community Art Gallery June 8 through October 28, 2012 includes drawings by four artists that depict precisely rendered forms and bodies in which the source is often unclear, conveying a sense of mystery and transformation.
This workshop is great for beginners who, after viewing the exhibition with the artist, will be introduced to basic techniques of observational drawing in charcoal. Participants will learn to translate a three-dimensional form onto a two-dimensional surface, explore the additive/subtractive technique of rendering light and shadow, and practice basic methods for accurately sighting the relationships between placement, scale, and proportion. At the end of the workshop, participants will have created a drawing that reflects a deeper understanding of an observed form.
