Undrawing the Figure

This lively workshop is predicated on the idea that we have an intuitive sense of spatial geometry, and that just a few common obstacles prevent us from effectively utilizing this. Overcoming these obstacles allows us to draw quickly and accurately, no matter what our level of experience.

Through a combination of demos and hands-on instruction, we'll learn techniques to improve our discernment of significant shapes and mastery of the tools.

This edition of the Undrawing workshop spans two full days - nearly 12 hours of hands-on instruction and practice - and takes place at Schoolhouse for Art in Enniskerry, County Wicklow, Ireland.
