Drawing Workshop – Line and Form

In Drawing Workshop 1, we will discover the magic of lines, which is a versatile element widely used by both Western and Eastern artists in art history. Not only we will learn line drawing with a realistic perspective, but also experience the charm of lines to add abstract textures and enhance the special effects on our image.
Drawing Workshop – Value and Texture

In Drawing Workshop 2, we will learn the value—the trick to turn your 2d shapes into 3d forms. With different materials such as pencil, charcoal, color pencil, and ink we will explore different methods of hatching, tonal, stipple to achieve various textures, patterns, effects, as well as the aesthetic value of them.
Color Workshop – Watercolor
