In this three-day charcoal sanding workshop, students will develop a greater use of value,and increase their understanding of light sources and their effects through learning charcoal sanding techniques. We will be creating a community of learners ready to tackle a new and demanding approach to art. Students will work on drawing from a plaster casts using the sanding method. They will be working from photographic reference as well as from life. Students can expect to learn all of the techniques required to create beautiful, rich black and white artworks; from minute details (sanding tips, different grades of sandpaper and how to deal with “problem” areas) to toning larger areas.
