'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' Workshop returns to DCAD
July 30th 2012
Move from doodles to detailed drawings with the Delaware College of Art and Design’s special workshop, “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.” The three-day workshop will be held Aug. 17, 18 and 19.
Offered in a nurturing environment, the course is designed specifically for students who have never drawn before. Using the techniques based on the work of Dr. Betty Edwards, author of the renowned book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, this course is based on the principle that in order to learn to draw, it is first necessary to see differently. Students will learn basic strategies of seeing, known as perceptual skills, which will enable them to draw with ability and confidence.
Instructor Linda Jo Russell will guide participants through a step-by-step process, combining lecture and studio exercises. The workshop begins with introduction to theory and throughout the course students will develop their perceptual skills through exercises focusing on contour lines, positive/negative space, sighting and light/shadow relationships.
Each session is from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at DCAD, 600 N. Market St., Wilmington. Lunch breaks will be scheduled, so students may bring their lunch to class. A supply list will be provided after registration.
