Drawing Workshop with Jerrod Partridge
Gail Keenan Art Center in Long Beach, MS
Saturday, April 14, 2018
This workshop will focus on building fundamental skills for observational drawing utilizing still life and drawing outside if weather permits. Jerrod's one on one approach to teaching allows him to work with professionals and beginners within the same class setting. Traditional academic exercises are used to build confidence in developing representational drawings.
