Drawing 101

Taught by Hyewon Grigoni

Our registration system has changed!

Going forward, registration for all Duke Arts Create workshops will now be processed through the Duke University Box Office. To streamline this transition, we have prepared a user guide that will walk you through the new registration process. Watch the video here.

About the Workshop

In this beginner friendly workshop, Hyewon Grigoni will take you through some basic drawing exercises and give away all her drawing secrets. Participants will learn the art of looking as the foundation to drawing out observations. We will make beautiful lines, possibly use one another as models, and have a great time while developing drawing skills. By the end of class you should have several sketches to take home and the inspiration to keep drawing!

 

No supplies or experience necessary.

About the instructor

Hyewon Grigoni has engaged in a variety of creative practices since childhood. Her work and writing have appeared in art shows, in print, and on air for public radio. She has taught art and art appreciation at the K-12 level, and her favorite discipline to teach for both kids and adults is Drawing 101 – aka the Art of Observing. Lately she focuses on daily sketching, portrait painting, and beginning carpentry.

Hyewon believes that art, like good writing or good religion, can comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. Her work aims to achieve a little of both in equal measure.

She hopes attendees of DukeCreate workshops will enjoy a laid back, supportive environment to get away from their day and make stuff.
