Sketching Tips and Tricks for Beginners

Time: 10:00 A.M. – 2 P.M.
Place: Atlantic Cape Community College; Room K136, Mays Landing Campus
Title: “Sketching Tips and Tricks for Beginners”
Contact Michele Mateluvich at mmatulev@atlantic.edu to register. All participants must be registered in advance of the workshop.
NOTE: All participants MUST be registered before the day of the workshop.

Description: From gesture to sustained drawing, a sketchbook can be one of the most valuable tools but too often is underutilized especially by those just starting out. Atlantic Cape Community College’s Professor of Art, Cheryl Knowles-Harrigan will teach participants to expand their use of a sketchbook. Included will be gesture drawing, washes in monochrome, pen & ink, and quick versus refined pencil techniques. Also discussed will be sighting angles and space, tackling and capturing the essence and value patterns of your subject. This workshop is a must for anyone who wants to maximize their sketchbook, increase their repertoire of media and see better to ultimately draw better. This workshop is ideal for beginners as drawings are small scale and different media and techniques are addressed from the concept of line, through tone using different media.

(Supplies and snack not included – we will take a snack break. Participants must be 18 years or older.)
