Basic Drawing: Drawing as Seeing

To draw well, you have to see well. The mind wants the hand to draw as it imagines things appear rather than what the eye observes. Come learn to see with the eyes of an artist and experiment with many basic drawing techniques such as contour, line, and gesture drawing, as well as learning to consider the importance of using negative space. We'll explore the fascinating process of describing three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface (paper) in a way that evokes realistic representation. Deb Rohr is a lifelong artist who has a long background in drawing and painting. She also made a living as a motor sport and fine art/portrait photographer for more than 10 years.
