In this introductory drawing class, the group will do a few quick drawing exercises to loosen up, and then work on some object/still life drawing. Participants should bring an object they love, so that you have some connection to your subject. Together, the class will discuss the difference between looking and seeing, which is key to drawing (or any art making, really). Instructor Mark Kelly will show some examples of different types of drawing through history.
Mark Kelly is a Rockland-based artist who works with a variety of media, including—but not limited to: tea, tar, onions, insects, smoke, fire, and charcoal. He was the 2009 Earth Week Artist-in-Residence at Waterfall Arts in Belfast. He is a founding partner of Aarhus Gallery in Belfast where his work can be seen year-round.
