Intro to Drawing and Art History- Dada and Surrealism

Learn to create compelling still-life images of specific periods in Art History. 

Introduction to Drawing and Art History is a monthly 3-hour workshop, where students learn how to create compelling still-life images with charcoal or graphite inspired by the compensation, technique, and observation of specific periods in Art History. 

Each session focuses on short fragments of the history of art, creating a quick and dynamic timeline that reviews the most relevant elements and influences in art, while enriching the mind and providing inspiration for still-life compositions. 

While it’s recommended to take various workshops to enhance the art history and technical aspects of each lesson, students have the option to take workshops independently, for each session is designed to work autonomously reviewing basic elements of drawing, perspective, and composition. 

On September 17 the class’s topic will be Dada and Surrealism. From the 1920s through the 1940s focusing on the works of Marcel Duchamp, Salvador Dali, and Frida Kahlo from the composition, expression, to texture. 

No prior experience is necessary. 18+ only. 

Taking place at the Bailey Contemporary Arts Center, 41 Northeast 1st Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33060.
