Drawing with Mark Pappas

In this Drawing workshop-studio, we will be drawing from nature, by focusing on our direct observations of the landscape, the still-life, and the figurative-portrait. By studying the negative and positive shapes and spaces of the subjects, as a means of forming art experiences, the student will learn to perceive and become aware of the fundamental mechanics and language of creating an image.
