A POST Still Life Series: Charcoal Drawing with Clare Fox
Saturday June 17th from 10am to 2:30pm
Entry Level Class - No experience necessary however minors must have a guardian present.
This season, POST invites different artists to lead a session with their take on a POST Still Life.
We believe that EVERYONE can draw. Yes, even you. By drawing together, we not only learn new skills and improve our techniques, we build community through shared experience. Lose yourself in the process. Get into a flow state by focusing on a collection of POST's ordinary objects.
This class is designed to be a fun, experiential, and experimental workshop for all skill levels rather than an academic dive into “learning to draw". Come join the fun!
For as long as people have been creating visual artwork, there has been a desire to record ordinary, everyday objects. These works evoke a mood and remind us of life’s hidden beauty. As viewers, the chosen still life objects offer some insight into the lives of others.
Join Clare in the studio for a session of Reductive Charcoal Drawing. We will explore using erasers and charcoal, in all its moody forms. This particular style of charcoal drawing is prized for its ability to produce an interplay between light and shadow, known as chiaroscuro. Though a bit messy, getting our hands dirty with charcoal dust is a very satisfying way to learn, play, and experiment!
Everyone will bring home a still life drawing and the experience of losing themselves in the process.
COVID-19 POLICY - We are asking all workshop participants to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative test result from within three days prior to the class and to accept all requests of both POST and the instructor concerning mask wearing.
