Tuesday Night Drawing Club at greenwater garage + gallery

On Tuesdays we inspire each other while we learn the fundamentals of a continued drawing practice.

Over the course of the summer we’ll work on a variety of drawing exercises to get you on the path to making your own drawings and images. We’ll look at the work of other artists, explore new techniques and build on the basics of drawing. These lessons are non-linear and based in the essential principles of art: form, line, composition, value, texture, light and shadow. The focus of every exercise is practice – begin where you are and learn something new!

Each session will include a review of the materials, a demonstration of a technique, a warm-up exercise and guidance through making a small-format drawing. You are invited to ask questions, share your work and participate fully in the workshop. You can use this summer’s series as a starting point or as inspiration for your continued creative practice.

You may join the session online or in-person (full vaccination + booster required). Simply sign up on Eventbrite at the Register button below. The garage is equipped with “Zoom-in-the-room,” so you will get to meet friends from other places who join us in the practice.

Each session is $10, open to adults of all skill levels and is designed to encourage and inspire your individual drawing practice. As a participant, you will also be invited to post your artwork to a private greenwater Facebook community. As you develop your practice in the company of others, you will find support, encouragement, inspiration and friends!
