Have you always wished you could draw?
Lisbeth Firmin will be using Dr. Betty Edwards’ techniques from the famous Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain book, combined with her own unique drawing skills, to encourage both professional and beginning students to find their unique ways of seeing. She takes the stress out of “being creative” and guides students towards unleashing their own unique energy through making art.
Through an intensive combination of lectures, demonstrations and studio exercises over five days, you will:
- Develop the skills of perception necessary to draw with confidence
- Explore the relationship between drawing and the two brain hemispheres, based on pioneering research by Dr. Betty Edwards
- Work through a carefully sequenced process in which you will learn the basic strategies of ‘seeing’ which will enable you to draw with skill, and produce high-quality drawings
- Unlock your creative side and begin to see in a whole new way
