Are you a painter who just doesn't like to draw or have a hard time drawing something right? You love colours, you love painting, but your work suffers because your drawing skills lag behind your painting desires? This is the workshop for you. Drawing for painters is focused on making painters better at representing elements in their paintings. From perspective to understanding shapes and design, this will be a back to basics to propel you to new heights.
This is not a painting workshop. Students will be concentrating on drawing and sketching.

About the Instructor
A classically trained artist, Zan is the recipient of several awards for plein air painting in Ontario. He is the founder and past president of Ontario Plein Air Society, a group of Ontario painters dedicated to painting the Canadian landscape from life.
I paint because I fall in love with a moment. Sometimes I capture it successfully, and other times, too many times, I fail. I am proud to say that my artwork has seeped into private collections from Australia through Europe to North America. I cherish all my collectors and value their choice to own my artwork. In a way, a work of art is not whole.
We ask that students supply their own sketchbooks (9x12") or paper and drawing pencils.
