In this interactive 6-hour workshop, participants will learn fundamental drawing skills they can later incorporate into their quilt designs. Larry's taught Beginning Drawing for over 30 years using an easy right-brain approach that gets students drawing right away.

Students will decide if they want to focus their day-long drawing project with FLAT (2-Dimensional) or DEEP space (3-Dimensional) treatment. Larry will explain visual impact techniques to make images come alive, on paper & in fabric. Everyone will complete a drawing project that integrates all 6 drawing skills:

  • Line & Contour Drawing
  • Shapes & Negative Space
  • 1, 2 & 3-point Perspective
  • Structure
  • Value
  • Composition

Here are 3 sample video clips to familiarize yourself with drawing in perspective:
