Online Workshop: Drawing from Life

This workshop meets virtually on March 29th, April 5th, 12th, and 19th from 6 – 8:00 PM.

The workshop is a dive into figure drawing and how we can utilize this practice in our sketchbooks and daily lives when we don’t have time to sit down or hire a figure model. We will go over gestural drawing, drawing people in motion, portraiture, and sketchbook practices using traditional and nontraditional mediums. This is meant for high school students who are hoping to build their portfolios, people who are just beginning to dip their toes into the fine art world, artists/musicians/writers with a nonvisual-arts focus, and people who want to practice their drawing skills even when art isn’t a primary focus.

Session 1 is “Still Life,” Session 2 is “Gestural Drawing,” Session 3 is “Landscape,” and Session Four is “Portraiture.”

Instructor: Storm W.

They graduated from Maine College of Art in 2017 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Printmaking and have spent the last four years dedicated to travel and being of service through AmeriCorps and the Backcountry Trails Program, CA. Their art has recently focused on themes of nature, queerness, and feminism and uses mural painting and “Crankie” illustration as their primary medium.

The cost of this workshop is set at a sliding scale in efforts to make it as accessible as possible. The total we are spending to put on the workshop (including instructor’s payment, materials, admin costs, etc.) is about $333. In order to break even, we’d need each participant to pay about $48. Please pay based on what you are able. Consider paying a higher amount if you can, and help make it possible for us to offer these resources to those who aren’t able to pay as much. If you can’t afford to pay, don’t hesitate to sign up for free or at a low cost! Please refer to the sliding scale chart at the bottom of the page for info on how we arrive at our prices.
