Introduction to Drawing: Continued is a five-week workshop designed to expand and build upon the concepts taught in the Introduction to Drawing workshop.

The focus will continue to be on drawing expression through line, shape, form, and volume. The concept of using colour will also be introduced in this workshop. Students will free up their marks on paper while exploring with different dry mediums beyond graphite.

There will be a weekly project based on the fundamentals of elements and design.  Students will also observe demonstrations and take part in group critiques.
