Learn how to draw the hand and why you couldn’t do it before.

The hands represent unique challenges to both the beginning and intermediate artist. By approaching drawing and observation through a different lens, we will overcome many of these obstacles. This course focuses on underlying structure and the process of observation, rather than relying on anatomical instruction. Learn how to translate the hand that you see onto paper using pencil and graphite.

This workshop will meet once and consists of:

    • Drawing demonstration with a step-by-step explanation
    • Drawing tools and material demonstration
    • Drawing the hand from observation
    • Individual feedback from the instructor

Online payment of the enrollment fee reserves a spot:
