Charcoal: It’s Not All Black and White with Laurel Oswald Clark

$65/55 mbrs. (discounted price will display for members upon login)

Explore the many sides of charcoal for creating value and texture.

This workshop is designed to explore in depth the many sides of charcoal and how it can play an important role in all work no matter the preferred medium. By taking the focus off paint, color and too many material choices and limiting the student’s access to charcoal (many different types explored: vine, compressed, pencil, powder, chunky, thin) and white surfaces (drawing paper, w/c paper, canvas, wood panels) the student is pushed to focus on values, line and form, communicating in a more direct way. Charcoal is a beautiful, fluid medium that encourages the student to work bigger, messier and faster. With exercises designed to open the student’s arms and mind, the session starts big, loose and dirty. And by exploring different surfaces and techniques, the student will walk away with new information to incorporate into their own work.
