Ignite or expand your drawing skills by combining layers of mark-making with acrylic paint, collage, ink, transfer, and transparency, and by drawing on a painted three-dimensional object. Explore combinations of wet and dry media, practice unusual background treatments, and learn to edit your work using reductive techniques. Weekly classes include slide talks examining contemporary drawing as well as masters from art history, many from the Museum’s Collection; work sessions; and individual discussions with the instructor.

Instructor Pamela Lanza has an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Before relocating to Asheville, she taught at UC Berkeley Extension’s Post-Baccalaureate Art Studio program and San Francisco Art Institute for 20 years. Her artwork has been exhibited at the Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley), UNC Asheville, Florida State University, California Institute of Integral Studies, and Stanford University.
