Inspired by Nature - Sketching workshop with Emma Skinner
Have you ever stoped to think about the role of the arts and appreciating the beauty of nature in enhancing our connection with the natural world? We've teamed up with Dubai based artist Emma Skinner to bring you a sketching workshop and discussion about the different lenses we can view the world through.
Overview of Workshop - An Artist’s view of an apple
Observing the different type of shadow and highlight observed on a static object.
Including: highlight, core light, reflected light, midtones, occlusion shadow, cast shadow
We will take the time to look at an object with an artists eye, forgetting that it is an apple and all our associations with it’s purpose. We will think about how it absorbs and reflects light and how to represent it as a 3D black and white image.
