Join local artist Garrett Turner in this two-week study of charcoal drawing! In week one you’ll learn all about the tools you use, how to accomplish your desired effects, and practice your skills with a still life setup. Then, in week two, go beyond charcoal pencils to learn about powders, bricks, willow sticks, and more. You’ll spend time practicing with these new tools to create dimension and then practice and create with a still life setup.
