Blind Contour Portraiture Workshop

On May 21 we launched our first art workshop!  12 individuals showed up for the Blind Contour Portraiture Workshop, all a little nervous about their art skills.  Mary Strawn led us through the basics of pencil drawing without looking at your work and without lifting your pencil!  Several objects were provided for practice before we moved on to drawing our hands in different positions.  We advanced as we drew a portrait of a partner and finally sat before mirrors and drew ourselves.  The outcomes were so unique and beautiful!  To finish the project we used watercolors to color our self portraits.  In a couple of short hours everyone became an artist!
