- Part II of the Organic Sketching (OS)/ Organic Drawing (OD) series…
Let’s put all those new sketching techniques to work for us and create some great Drawings! (Organic Sketching is a prerequisite, so book classes accordingly)
Chris Maggio ~ Instructor
ORGANIC DRAWING (OD) is a 2-Hour Workshop designed to stretch the mental and sketching skills you learned in OS. Time to bring your own style and designs into the picture!
Using your newfound Organic Sketching skills and techniques, we work together to bring your sketched concepts to the completed drawing stage. We will be working from images that you find interesting, as well as real objects, and of course, your imaginations! So, bring in the ideas, the sketches, and visions that you most want to create (i.e. dragons, aircraft, flowers, whatever!) We will cover shading techniques, tone, line quality, highlighting, weight, and focus, and emphasize advanced pencil control. It’ll be fun, a mental challenge, a hand eye coordination experience, and a solid new base from which to create!
- We will be working with the same materials we used in the OS class. Materials are provided.
Please be prepared by bringing a few preliminary sketches of the object or design that you would like to work on in the class. Important! Utilize the OS methods from the first class as they are the basis of this advanced class (decision lines, commitment lines, eyelashes, etc.) Our objective is to add new skills and techniques and not revisit the OS lessons, if possible.
Organic Drawing is the next confidence level we are going to conquer! So, practice up with those Organic Sketching skills, and let’s jump into this new phase of creation!
