“Drawing is the skill of learning to trust our eyes and experimenting in expressive mark making.”  – Norman Ed

Local artist and retired teacher Norman Ed will inspire you to challenge your perspective in this three-part drawing series. Students will develop a strong foundation in observational drawing, learn about continuous/ contour line drawing, and explore other drawing techniques.  Over this three-week course, young artists will create their own large-scale graphite drawing using the grid method, which is used to enlarge or compress drawings.

Student’s subject matter will be based on individual choice and expression.
