with G Caruso

Learn how to sketch on toned paper, a technique used by Renaissance masters. Learn how starting with a toned surface can be used to create efficient three dimensional forms.

During this free livestreaming workshop, you will be guided step by step in this sophisticated yet simple technique. G Caruso, the instructor for the Figure Drawing Workshop Series, will explain what materials to use, demonstrate the technique and answer your questions.

This class is open to all levels of experience.
