The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is excited to offer a series of advanced drawing classes with Kathy Pilling-Whitney. Over the course of two classes, Kathy will teach students how to draw forms turning in space. The classes will be held from 9:30 AM to 12 PM on two consecutive Saturdays, September 16th and 23rd. These classes are free, but students must provide their own materials. Open to students ages 16 and older. Pre-registration is required. To register, please contact the director of the Gmeiner at 570-724-1917 or [email protected]
In the first class, students will learn how to draw sections of drapery, aka “ribbons.” Then they will learn how to overlap and weave the ribbon design, and finally how to shade the ribbons using color to push and pull the forms in space. The second class will build on those skills, teaching students how to draw folds of drapery, including clothing, using charcoal.
The materials needed for these classes are: a pencil, a kneaded (workable) eraser, Vine willow charcoal, colored pencils (Crayola or Prismacolor 12 or 24 set), 4 sheets of 12x 18, 16x 20 or 18×24 inch white paper, and 4 pieces of 16×20 or 18×24 inch white charcoal paper.
