In this drawing workshop, participants will first learn how to draw “lines”; they will learn what a line is, how to create it using a variety of tools (pencil, ink on paper) and also how to manipulate the quality of the lines. Based on observation, next will come contour drawing, as well as shapes and values. The session will end with participants putting this all together to create a delightful drawing panel. All skill levels welcome.

This workshop will take place via Zoom. All participants are required to source their own equipment needed for this workshop. Please see below for details.This workshop will be recorded and may be used by the Bata Shoe Museum for internal purposes only.
