Expand your drawing skills while learning new methods for teaching still-life drawing to K-12 students! In the first week of this two-week workshop series, participants create a sophisticated still-life drawing in charcoal. Each student works in a personal studio space with individual project set-ups. Lesson plans that feature technical drawing skills accompany instructor demonstrations and the hands-on portion of the class.
30 Washington State Clock hours are included in the cost of this workshop.

Although not required, it is strongly recommended that participants take this workshop together with Oil Painting in Grisaille to optimize the learning experience. Participants that take both weeks are able to use their drawings from week one to get a head start on their paintings in week two, and work on more sophisticated set-ups. Although these workshops have an education focus, enrollment is open to the public. No previous experience is required. (30 clock hours - workshop cost includes clock hour fee)
The Da Vinci Initiative provides intensive skill-based training to art teachers through a summer atelier program. This year during the first two weeks of August (2015), the program will consist of one week of drawing and one week of grisaille painting in partnership with Gage Academy of Art.
