Charcoal, Clouds and Chardonnay with Randy Buvala

Wednesday, August 9, 6:30pm-8:30pm

Learn basic charcoal drawing techniques through the exploration of clouds.  Randy will demonstrate some techniques that he used to create his “Head in the Clouds” series.  Bring in some black and white images of the sky you print off  from the internet…or better yet, the next time you’re outside with a glass of wine or a cocktail, take some pics of your own of the clouds and skylines that catch your eye.  Then discover how to render these pictures into impressive works of art. It is a BYOB workshop so pack up your favorite libation with your pics. $35/45 (member/non-member) per session.
