St. Albert Painters Guild
Pulse: Drawing & Painting the Figure
with Sharon Moore-Foster
Join Sharon Moore-Foster on Saturday, March 3rd from 9:30am to 4pm for an invigorating workshop exploring human form and energy.
The session will start with seeing and drawing/painting exercises that are focused on energy, composition, mark-marking (brush work), colour and value.
Working with the model(s), you will be invited to see and draw/paint the strength, fragility, grace, vitality and essential je ne sais quoi of the human form in a way that will create unique and expressive work.
Sharon’s expertise and enthusiasm are contagious! Get a fresh perspective on drawing and let it lead you into playing with pencil and paint.
Emphasis will be on participants discovering and recognizing their unique voice and point of view, and developing the skill set to confidently express them
