Drawing as Foundation, Voice, and Guide
Much more than an imitative, representational act, drawing is a versatile, organic skill which encourages creativity and exploration, and also underlies many other modes of visual expression. This pre-workshop lecture will highlight drawing’s identity as a rich, meaningful communication device which provides the foundation for a specialized artistic technique.
