Loosen up your drawing in a one day workshop where I will share some of the tools and strategies to create work that goes beyond the physical appearance of a subject. I will show you ways to explore the expressive potentials of ink, charcoal and dry pastel in combination with handmade tools to make marks and extend your visual language.
