March Workshops: THE MAGIC OF PENCIL
offered by  Lissa Rachelle

The Basics of Working in Graphite - $60
Discover the true magic of pencils in this single day, 5 hour workshop, which is designed to introduce you to the tools used by pencil artists who work in a realist style. Besides learning about all the various tools that help create the magic, you will also learn the real secret behind achieving those beautifully smooth blended tones that so many artists struggle to perfect. This workshop is the prerequisite for the other two.

Creating Realistic Textures in Graphite I - $60
Prerequisite: The Basics of Working in Graphite
Discover how to give your drawings beautiful depth with realistic textures! This single day, 5 hour workshop picks up where The Basics of Working in Graphite left off by helping you to practice your new skills and become intimately familiar with your pencil grades and what they can do. Watch the magic of pencil come to life as you learn to realistically portray the appearance and texture of grass, foliage, tree bark, wood grain and bricks in your drawings.

Creating Realistic Textures in Graphite II - $60
Prerequisite: The Basics of Working in Graphite
This workshop is exactly the same as the one above, except we will focus on learning to realistically portray the appearance and texture of skin, eyes, hair, fur and feathers in your drawings.

Please Note: NO previous drawing experience is necessary and each workshop is limited to six participants.

Location: The Artists’ Workshop Gallery, 119 Beechwood Avenue, Ottawa (free parking available on site).
