Exploring Drawing Materials (Live Class)

Join NMA master draftsman Glenn Vilppu for a 10-week interactive Live Class, where he will take you on a journey through 8 unique drawing materials beyond the typical graphite and charcoal. Each week you will be introduced to new materials to break you out of your comfort zone and help you develop skills to make you a more flexible artist. Glenn will also combine previously covered materials and show how you can mix and combine them for powerful results. You will further explore these materials and techniques with assignments that Glenn will critique in forthcoming sessions.
