January 17, 2018– Please note: The 10:30 AM demonstration is now full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest! Note: there is still room in the 2:00 PM demonstration.

Bring your drawing tools and join in with this enlightening demonstration that is bound to inspire you to make drawing your part of your daily practice.

Why did great masters spend time drawing with diligence and intensity when they could obviously paint so well? Mark Anthony demonstrates 3 key reasons based on great works of Michelangelo, Raphael, Rubens, Edgar Degas and modern masters including Alphonse Mucha. And, they didn't stop there - these masters took some of their great drawings to high finish and properly placed them among great masterworks.

This session aims to show why drawing is ultimately the foundation of all art, and how drawing with precision and detail can lead to even better paintings, and to drawings that are considered finished pieces on their own. You will learn to compose conceptual and finished works in graphite and other dry mediums in a stage‐by‐stage process, including form, composition, how to use and draw light, and how to take a drawing from a rough sketch to a great, finished piece, resulting in a solid execution of your final works.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus North Vancouver or contact them at 604‑904‑0447 to register.

His professional work history includes owning and operating a small Alberta based portrait studio/gallery, working with private, historical and municipal heritage projects, and teaching hundreds of students of all levels in the grand tradition of observational and classical drawing. www.markanthonystudio.com
