Drawing and Perception

This workshop will focus on all drawing mediums and paper. The relationship between touch and surface, and moving and unmoving objects will be explored. Baring down hard on a surface will create a dark area or line, touching lightly will create the opposite effect. Participants will examine materials, drawing still life, in reference to light, cast shadows, texture, action, and movement, and create the illusion of space in two dimensions.  Concepts such as how to find movement in a still object or how to capture motion and make it stand still will be examined. What is the common denominator? The workshop will concentrate on your touch, your perception, what is real, and what is your point of view, what has been observed and what has not.
