Join us at Push/Pull for a beginners drawing workshop on the third Wednesdays of the month. Have you always drawn stick figures? Want to impress your friends or work towards drawing illustrations and comics? 

In Drawing Techniques, we'll cover different topics each week--choose sessions that interest you, or come to all of them to get a well-rounded drawing foundation! 


May 15: Constructive Sketching. It’s as easy as playing with building blocks! Learn to draw complex creatures and characters by combining simple geometric shapes. Take it to the next level with 3-D thinking, and emerge a more confident ARTIST.


June 19: Developing a Sketchbook Practice. Want to be a sketchbook-keeping art whiz? Not sure where to start? This popular topic is back for another fun workshop! Brainstorm topics, create cool collages, and play with watercolor, pencil, and more! You’ll never ask “What should I draw?” again!!


July 17: Creating Graphite Value Scales. HB? B? H?? Ever wonder how graphite artists can achieve realism with just a pencil? Learn how to unlock the power of the humble graphite pencil, understand the hardness scale, and apply the rules to create convincing, semi-realistic, grey and white compositions.


August 21: Imaginative Menagerie. Just plain fun! We will mix and match our favorite animals, create gorgeous ink work, and color to our hearts’ delight! Learn some basic construction and imaginative drawing techniques to make some fun stuff!!


All supplies are included! Just bring your sketchbook--otherwise, we'll provide the paper.


Class takes place at Push/Pull, 2000 NW Market St. from 5:30 - 7:00 pm on Third Wednesdays of the month. 


"My name is Max Mandell! I've been drawing for work, school, and fun for over 10 years. It's a joy to share my love of traditional (and digital) media with the students at Push/Pull, and I am excited to make cool art with you :-)"
