Workshop: Learn to Draw Using a Plexiglass Viewing Panel
Friday, January 12, 2018 from 5:30-7:30pm
A Work of Art Gallery & Gifts
600 State Street, Bristol, TN
Instructor: David Kramer
Cost: $25

Getting an image to paper or canvas just got a whole lot easier! During this workshop, you will learn a simple and convenient way to transfer images from life or photos to a canvas or paper. You can sketch difficult perspectives or create accurate figure sketches in minutes – by just using a piece of plexiglass and a dry erase marker! This technique allows you to capture several complicated sketches in a very short period of time (2-3 minutes) without the concerns of drawing correct perspective, shadows, movement, or measuring.

The plexiglass and dry erase marker are included in the cost of the workshop, so students will only need to bring a sketchbook, pencil, and eraser. Payment is due by January 5, 2018. To register, stop by or contact the gallery at 423-797-0089 between 10am and 5pm.
