Adult Studio Art Workshop (via Zoom)

Introduction to Drawing

Be inspired by Joseph Stella's charcoal on paper, The Crusher and Mixer Building (1918–20), and create drawings that evoke mood through geometry, simplicity, light, and shadow. SBMA Senior Teaching Artist Tina Villadolid explores the value scale, thumbnail sketches, line and shape, positive and negative space, how to measure spatial distances and angles with your pencil and eye, and mark making and texture.
