Expressive Drawing: Unleashing Your Creativity

UW-Eau Claire Campus Eau Claire, WI 54703 (Contact office) Start Date: Tuesdays, October 4 End Date: October 25 Time: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
In this workshop we will focus on non-objective drawing and the creative process. Each class is designed to provide participants with experiences that enhance their creative and expressive abilities. Our experimental approach will be exploratory, with each participant receiving individual attention from the instructor.

Activities will include discussion of the elements of art and principles of design, speed drawing, action drawing, automatic drawing and more. Participants will work individually, with partners and in groups. This workshop is not about creating a “masterpiece.” It is not about creating a finished work of art. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced artist, this class is for you. We will loosen up, let go, be brave and have fun!
