This class will focus on process and exploration informed by O’Keeffe’s sketchbook studies and pencil drawings. We will learn how to create sketchbook studies as part of the artistic practice. We invite you to engage in wonder and fascination with your chosen subject matter as we learn how to find a drawing composition through loose sketching. With an emphasis on looking with care and curiosity, the workshop will involve several short studies from life followed by a longer, more in-depth drawing from life.
This class is suitable for youth ages 12 and up. Children are welcome to participate alongside their adults.
