About The Event

Workshop Description (from the instructor)

This two-day workshop will explain how drawing has nothing to do with talent. Drawing is a learned skill. Simple proof: Try tracing an image with tracing paper. If you were successful, you have proven you can draw. You may think, “but I can’t draw what I see in front of me.” If this is the case then you have a seeing problem not a drawing problem and this workshop is going to teach you how to see. Seeing is a learned skill. Learn to see…thus draw with Russell Jewell Ed.D.

Artist’s Statement

A simple black square is a window to everything in the world… in the dark.  Therefore, regardless of the subject or medium, all that matters is light.  Is it then not true, the world we observe and the world we imagine both demand light for observation, thus we create enlightened worlds to be shared with others?
