Learning to Draw: A Self Portrait Project with Sigrid Burton


Burton_Sigrid08Anyone can learn to do it (guaranteed)!

Drawing is observing and translating what you see to paper. This is a mechanical skill which involves learning how to observe and eye hand coordination. Mastery can be achieved by anyone even if you think you cannot draw or have no "talent".

Join Sigrid Burton in a series of drawing workshops and create a realistic self portrait. Learn approaches, techniques and other skills to help you draw what you see and express yourself creatively as an artist.

Please come if you love to draw or if you would like to draw (but think you can’t). The workshop will be conducted over four days. Each day will have a different exercise and focus designed to enhance your skills.
