  • Introduction: Still Life Drawing with Charcoal
Large Clay Pitcher Charcoal Pastel 39 x 27

The Visual Art League of Lewisville (VAL) will hold an Art Workshop on Saturday, Dec. 14, 1-4 p.m. at Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street.

Working from still life objects and the interior, we will draw with line and shape, create differing values, design the composition, and draw a convincing sense of volume and light. Charcoal is easy to use. You can smudge it, erase it, cover a large area quickly, and change your mind about the composition. We will work on a large format. Supplies needed are an 18 x 24 good quality drawing paper pad, kneaded erasers, hard erasers, one soft cloth, and soft charcoal sticks, 2B to 3B. All levels are welcome. Advanced students can push the boundaries of their work, making them more expressive of ideas.

Note: Working with charcoal and paper can be very drying to hands. Bring hand cream.

The workshop is free to attend, but due to class size limitations, participants are required to register through Eventbrite.
