Participants will brush up on their drawing skills in this three session drawing workshop with visual artist Gabrielle Barzaghi. Drawing from still life and in the galleries, you will practice basic drawing skills such as visual measuring, line, value, composition and perspective. The class structure will remain flexible to allow for each individual’s drawing ability.
Gabrielle Barzaghi is a visual artist. She is a former Senior Lecturer in Art and Design at Suffolk University. She lives in Gloucester and is represented by Trident Gallery.
Session One will meet in the activity room. Basic observational drawing techniques will be covered by showing examples, demonstration, and practice.
Session Two will involve drawing in the galleries from sculptural forms focusing on structural line, value, and volume.
Session Three will include compositional analysis and the study and copying of a masterwork in the Museum’s collection.
