Portfolio Development: Landscape Drawing and Painting in Central Park
Saturday–Sunday, 10:00 am–4:00 pm
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 13 students
This workshop covers plein air drawing (using reed pen and ink, or charcoal) or painting (using full color pastel). Both monochromatic and color thumbnail studies will precede longer studies. Individual work in a series is encouraged. In inclement weather we will draw in Studio 6 inspired by master drawings or still life using the demonstrated techniques.
