The first in a series of art classes held at the riverside setting of the WaterhouseRestaurant's outdoor (heated!) patio in downtown Peterborough. We will learn tricks for working small, quickly and from life, drawing the river and restaurant/cafe scenes around us, using ballpoint and micro- pens, ink wash and graphite. We will learn how to simplify the complex scenes around us with positive/negative shapes and hatch mark techniques, looking at the cumulative mark-making of artists such as Seurat.
Materials will be provided for the class. It is appropriate for all skill and experience levels. Coffee and pastries will be available from the Bakers Station next door.
