Art House 7 Workshop: Drawing the Portrait in Charcoal with Teresa Oaxaca

Art House 7: Art School & Art Supply Store
5537 Langston Blvd.
Arlington, Virginia 22207

Join us at Art House 7 to discover the charm of charcoal drawing’s simplicity and very forgiving nature. In this two-day workshop, Teresa Oaxaca will talk about and demonstrate her approach to drawing the human portrait in charcoal. A limited supply list will be used. Simple paper and vine charcoal will mostly do the trick. You likely will have all the materials at home already. However, if you would like to explore further with inks and line widths, she will be encouraging you to try a variety of charcoals and chalks. Teresa will demonstrate with vine charcoal, white chalk, compressed charcoal pencil, and clean brushes dedicated to smudging and manipulating charcoal. She will use Rives BFK paper.

You will be working from a model. Depending on how many people register, we may have 1 or 2 models. Each day, there will be coffee, tea, and some morning goodies to get you started for the day.

For details on registration, please visit our website! The Drawing the Portrait in Charcoal Workshop with Teresa Oaxaca will take place on March 16th and 17th from 10am-4pm at Art House 7.
