About the Class:  Join artist Miriam Hughes for a transformative two-hour workshop exploring the art of contour and blind contour drawing. In this hands-on experience, participants will discover the profound impact of truly observing their subjects and translating what they see onto paper.

Through engaging exercises, you will learn to see beyond the outlines of objects and delve into the intricacies of form, shape, and space. Starting with simple objects and gradually progressing to more complex subjects, you will develop observational skills and artistic intuition.

Contour drawing teaches us to slow down, observe, and capture the essence of what we see with a single, continuous line. Blind contour drawing takes this practice further, challenging us to trust our instincts and hand-eye coordination without looking at the paper.

This workshop is not just about drawing; it's about learning to see. Whether you're an experienced artist looking to refine your skills or a beginner eager to explore the world of drawing, this workshop offers valuable insights and techniques that will enhance your creative journey.

Discover the joy of drawing and the art of truly seeing the world around you. All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided.  If you have a favorite sketchbook, please feel free to bring it.
