Contemporary approaches in drawing cultivate free and energetic artwork. The exploratory processes readily lend themselves to capture the culture and environment in Qatar, to which each participant responds to a unique way.
The class will draw and paint from observation using professional inks, liquid watercolors, and a range of charcoal. Various regional and contemporary artists underpin each week’s exploration. Participants are supported through one-on-one guidance, group sharing, reflection, and class critiques.
