Join us for a whether you are a complete beginner or you are more experienced and want technical expertise on specific subjects or materials. We offer drawing workshops, both online and in person, that foster creative expression and technical advancement at any level.
Did you know that drawing stimulates parts of your brain in different ways, compared to text?
Drawing can be a tool for creative expression, visual thinking and overcoming blocks – in addition to art making.
Would you like to become more fluent in visual thinking and communicating? If you are willing to engage in the process of drawing thinking, rather than expecting one-dimensional solutions or quick results, then this workshop is right for you.
The goal here is not to make a realistic drawing and you do not need to be a “talented artist” to make use of the skills we will develop. You will learn concrete, hands-on techniques to facilitate the switch from left to right brain. This is not a workshop on the concept of creativity, it is more about providing skills and techniques that one can practice and use.
Find out why drawing is a way of thinking. Learn hands-on exercises for engaging the visual/creative side of your brain that cannot be accessed with language. Take for example, our lesson on drawing negative space. When you learn to draw the negative space surrounding an object, you are training your brain to be able to shift in and out of two modes of focus. The goal is not the finished drawing, but rather the clicking feeling of rapidly switching between perceptual modes at will becoming part of your muscle memory. This is the type of training that can lead to more agile visual thinking.
As we look around and see the demand for non-linear problem solving, innovation and visual communication in a variety of fields, we recognize that artists have a unique perspective to offer. Our drawing workshops are taught from an artist’s perspective and led by professional practicing artists. We have trained in and practiced the principles of drawing thinking for decades now we are ready to share our strategies with you.
