Event Series Event Series: Tonal Drawing Masterclass

Tonal Drawing Masterclass

Tue 3 October at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Discover the expressive possibilities of tonal drawing in this masterclass with Dobell Drawing Prize #23 finalist, Luke Thurgate.

Using still life set ups as the basis for observational drawing exercises, students will learn how to organise tonal values and convey subtle effects of light and shadow in their work. Through demonstration and group discussions, Luke will introduce a range of materials and techniques used by various artists to add to drama and tension to their drawings. In a fun and relaxed atmosphere, Luke will guide students to test the emotive and poetic qualities of simple subject matter and develop an individual approach to mark-making and composition.
