1 Day Wet Drawing Workshop in Melbourne, FL

9:00am – 3:30pm, $175

Learn to develop an intuitive touch in your drawing and painting. Using water and charcoal, you’ll enhance your speed, accuracy and sensitivity. Instructor Derek Gores recommends wet drawing as the perfect bridge between drawing and painting. He will demonstrate, and lead you in several drawings. Derek says that two of the most common requests among art students are to learn to ‘loosen up’ and to become ‘more accurate’, and this method addresses both. Subject matter will include abstract, spatial drawing, and the figure (a model will be provided). Beginners to experienced. One day only! Fee: $175 Media: Charcoal on Paper. Supply list upon registration. To register email

You’ll leave with 4-5 small finished pieces, and a head full of steam and ideas. $175. ZERO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. Supply list after registration.
