Class Description

Visiting artist Ernest Shaw moves participants through a short history of drawing, philosophies and purposes of drawing, and realistic expectations for outcomes. Shaw works diligently to create a relaxed, non judgmental, environment that is informative, fun, and engaging. His goal is to foster an experience that values catharsis and exploration of unconventional techniques over finished product.

As a product of Baltimore City Public Schools, Baltimore School for the Arts, Morgan State University and Howard University Shaw recognizes the importance of using his skills and talents for the betterment of others, not simply for his own self-aggrandizement. For Ernest, teaching is also an artistic medium.
