Instructor: Ian Welch
Ages: Adults and mature students ages 12 and up
Skill Level: Any

In this class, students will be able to experiment with a variety of drawing media to achieve a wide range of expressive mark-making. Utilizing alcohol-based inks, powdered graphite and a combination of wet and dry media, students will be encouraged to experiment with non-traditional material applications along with the element of chance and improvisation.  

Students will begin by learning how to tone paper with powdered graphite, the use kneaded erasers to remove areas of graphite to create imagery in a technique known as "reductive drawing."  The class will then move on to exploring how ink and alcohol can be sprayed onto paper to create hazy, atmospheric effects, then use traditional media to work back into the drawings if desired.  

This class is fun, engaging, exploratory, and messy.  Come prepared to dive into the wonderful world of alternative drawing techniques!
