Structural Drawing Class @ Artists' Edge in Poulsbo, Washington

I'll be teaching a new Structural Drawing Session at Artists' Edge in Poulsbo, WA beginning January 26th. The class goes for 5 weeks, meeting from 6-8 every Wednesday evening.

One of the most important skills in becoming a successful artist is drawing. Instructor Derek Gundy teaches this Structural Drawing Class much in the same way he learned from instructors over 20 years ago. Structural Drawing is the process of drawing the "space" that objects occupy, not just the object itself. Allowing the mind to imagine objects as "see-through" and challenging oneself to draw the entire subject brings great breakthroughs to artists wanting to improve their work. Derek will show students how to find new ways of seeing and how to take a different approach to their drawings. This class focuses on strictly line drawing, and no erasers are permitted. Students will start out with small objects for drawing, and eventually move to interiors and architectural renderings.
