July 3 - Join this ArtWaves workshop and learn about how to compose a drawing. In this workshop you will learn how to make your drawings more visually appealing and how to balance them, so you get the appropriate feelings across. You will be given a still life to draw then draw it in different compositions to see how it impacts the piece. You should have prior drawing experience, but do not need to know much about composition. Graphite and colored pencils will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own materials.

About the instructor: Gabrielle is a young illustrator and multimedia artist. She grew up on a small island in Maine, and consistently finds her art influenced by her upbringing. She worked for the Illustration institute based out of Portland Maine in 2020 producing a short documentary series about how drawing influences thinking. Gabrielle is currently enrolled at College of the Atlantic and is on course to graduate with a study in visual narratives. When she’s not drawing or crafting you can find her planning her next cross-country bike tour.
