Drawing for the 3rd Dimension w/ Visiting Artists David & Andrea Peterson #1334

This class is specifically designed for object makers (jewelers, ceramists, glass artists, sculptors, etc.) who want to improve their ability to quickly and effectively develop ideas through three-dimensional sketches and finished drawings. Not only is drawing a powerful tool for expanding creativity and sharpening design skills, it is also the most effective means of communicating visual ideas with potential clients and collectors. If you have ever been frustrated by drawing, or simply believe you can’t do it, this workshop promises to turn you around. As a professional illustrator, sculptor and jeweler with over forty years of experience, David Peterson will guide the class through ideation and “constructive sketching” to finished renderings and presentation drawings, suitable for commissions, project proposals, and marketing. Every artist and craftsman who works in a three-dimensional medium will find the skills introduced in this workshop to be an invaluable addition to their creative repertoire. No previous drawing experience is needed, but students should have ongoing work in a three-dimensional medium to focus their learning.
