Art of Drawing by Subtraction - 160924

This workshop, instructed by Tracy Frein CPSA, CPX, will help enhance your knowledge about value. You will rediscover and use a range of values to visually define objects, create contrast, and render the intricate details of light and shadow within your colored pencil drawing.

We will practice additive and subtractive methods to express observed tones within your work while exploring the "eraser" as an art medium. We will identify and recognize the range of values in the environment, and exercise critical thinking skills while observing, comparing and contrasting light and shadow and range of values. And lastly, we will explore working with both sides of the film to create the depth that gives the illusion of distance in the subjects face and their mood.

A supply list will be available at the Ypsilanti Township Community Center front desk. You may also print off a supply list from this link (copy and paste link into web browser): https://ytown.link/subtractionsupplies
