Many instructors believe that a good drawing is essential to a good painting; a good drawing is a map, a plan, the corner stone of putting together a strong composition. If you want to hone your drawing skills regardless of your current skill level, this workshop is for you. Larry is a local artist/instructor who has also conducted workshops at LSU in the Lagniappe program. He will cover the hows and whys of drawing, first through demonstrations, followed by hands on exercises and personal guidance. You will work from still life set ups arranged by Larry using direct lighting.

Supply List

  • 2 pencils (choices include HB, 2B, 6B) – at least one hard and one soft
  • Kneaded eraser
  • White eraser
  • 12″ ruler
  • Newsprint pad – 18″ X 24″ (or slightly smaller). You’ll need relatively large paper. We’re going to draw “big”)
  • Fat and thin stumps (a.k.a. tortillions)
  • Compressed charcoal
  • Charcoal Pencils (optional)

Larry says we’ll use smooth white paper later in the class, but not to worry about that yet.
