For many of us, drawing can be a mysterious or inaccessible process reserved for a "talented" few. Dr. Betty Edwards' groundbreaking Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain debunked this myth—anyone can learn how to draw, and draw well.
Join painter and printmaker Lisbeth Firmin for an intensive immersion in demonstrations and studio exercises that pack a semester-long art course into five days. You will develop the perceptual skills you need to draw with confidence, whether you are new to the medium or wish to expand your capabilities.
You will explore:
- The relationship of drawing and creativity to specialized functions of the right- and left-brain hemispheres and to ways of connecting to a new way of seeing
- A carefully sequenced process designed to unveil your ability to capture life as you see it, and strategies to produce skilled drawings
- Tips on how to shift your perception and see light, depth, dimensions, and proportions to better capture what inspires you.
You will return home with a new, enhanced way of seeing the world around you and strategies you can continue to develop to capture what inspires you in ways you never thought possible.
