Drawing as Seeing

with Hope Amico
Wednesdays: April 5, 12, 19; 7–9pm CT

Drawing from life requires us to see differently. In this virtual workshop, explore drawing as a way of seeing. Through exercises and practice, begin to train your eyes to see the world around us in shadows and light, and as shapes in relation to one another. Opportunities will be offered to discuss and share work with other participants. Through encouraging and open exploration, try a number of ways to see the world a little differently through our drawings. Open to all levels—whether you’re completely new to drawing or an artist seeking a refresher with accountability—everyone will learn new ways to practice drawing.

All skill levels welcome
Certificate: 9 hours, Category A, B, or D

MCBA offers two scholarship types for workshops—Financial Hardship Scholarships and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Scholarships—to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom these scholarships do not apply, register at the “Adult” rate and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make scholarships available.
