Workshop focuses on drawing for painting

Gardnerville artist Teri Sweeney will offer the three-day workshop, Drawing for Painting 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 3-5 at Sweeney's Studio in Gardnerville

The workshop will cover the basic principles of drawing, the grid system, drawing value shapes, one- and two-point perspective and drawing from life.

This focused workshop includes drawing exercises and handouts to help students understand the concepts and use them in future drawings for paintings. Emphasis will be placed on simplifying the drawing process and will help any painter who has not had the opportunity to discover some of the "tricks" to creating a good drawing.

The cost for three days is $150. Call 775-790-9261 or e-mail for more information and to register.
