Visiting Artist One-Week Workshop
Immerse yourself into a week-long study of drawing and the art of observation with Armin Mersmann. Learn the difference between observational and intellectual realism by drawing what you see, not what you think you see. Working exclusively with graphite, students will explore contour drawing, full-value rendering, negative/positive space, sight measuring, and the grid system. We will also cover how to take your own reference photos.
Armin Mersmann, mainly known for his intense naturalistic graphite drawings, has exhibited nationally with dozens of solo and major group exhibitions. He has taught drawing, the creative process, iPhoneography, and advanced critique at the American Academy of Art, Chicago; the Colorado Academy of Art, Boulder; Northwood University, Midland, MI; and countless workshops throughout the country. His work is included in more than 350 private, corporate, and public collections.
