Tree Limbs in Cross Contour

Be inspired by the structural beauty of wintry bare branches through a cross-contour focused class. Learn about foregrounds and backgrounds through silhouettes. Experiment on how to create form through lines and different line techniques.

Drawing from Experience is an ongoing series of drawing sessions that take inspiration from the High’s campus and collection. Each session focuses on a different way of seeing and capturing the world around us while allowing participants to explore their own personal expression and develop their drawing skills.
