Marilyn Dwyer Workshop
Focus on Drawing
April 6, 2019, 1:00-4:00 pm
Youth Hall, Cornwell Center, Charlotte NC
This workshop will help you improve your painting by improving your drawing. Afternoon Workshop: We will draw from 3 provided photo references mainly using charcoal. The first drawing will be mainly about value, the second about editing and composition and the third will require using perspective. These exercises will help you thoroughly “get to know” your subject. These quick drawings are not intended to be finished work but you’ll be amazed what comes out of them!
Supply List: 18 x 24 Newsprint Pad, Backing Board, Easel, Floor Covering, any drawing materials you like - Charcoal and Erasers will be provided
If you are also coming to Free Morning Demo from 10-12, please bring a bag lunch. Drinks and dessert will be provided.

Six years ago, I made a conscious effort to return to the fine arts after 35 years in graphic design. I began by rediscovering my drawing skills, mainly using charcoal. Then I discovered Dawn Emerson and how she adds pastel to charcoal, which led me to PPS. Through workshops and the generous support of PPS artists, I am learning to use color.
