Skull Still Life Using Proportional Sighting

Join us for a spooky-themed drawing session where you will harness your intuition to guide you through exploring proportions and scale. Learn to exaggerate shadows and lines to fuse dark shapes to emphasize a haunting mood in your drawings. Learn the magic behind scaling still lifes down to smaller proportions and how to use your drawing tools to aid in this.

All drawing levels are welcome, and all supplies are included. Ticket includes access to the museum.
