Many artists say that drawing is like riding a bicycle, you learn by doing it. Many also say that drawing is a form of poetry, a dance, a language, an attitude and it gives you renewed vision. All that is absolutely true!This workshop is designed to introduce several types of drawing: artistic, expressive, spontaneous, observational, “blind contour”, volumetric and gestural, using as themes objects, portraits, landscapes and the human body. The basic elements: line, shape, form, volume, texture, light and dark are introduced as ingredients for creative experimentation where doing and erasing, creating positive and negative shapes, allowing contrast and repetition come together resulting in a dynamic flux of energies. The workshop examines the relationship between technique and image, the language of materials, and drawing as an end product. The focus is on the experience, the very act of drawing. The resulting work is a by product.

We offer art classes that incorporate non-traditional art methods to fully stimulate all of the senses and promote self-expression in a fun, entertaining way. Our activities vary from Art and Wine sessions and experimental, one-of-a-kind art classes to therapeutic interdisciplinary workshops that will allow its participants to fully explore and unleash their creativity. A variety of creative engagements such as art and expressive body movement can positively impact emotions, attitudes, and beliefs which contribute to greater health and wellness for the individual. We believe that combining all art disciplines with an experimental twist not only produces therapeutic benefits but can also be tons of fun! And that's what we're all about...fun!
