Harvest Studio is a member of Living Loess which is a tour
offered on the third Saturday of each month from May through October.
On the Living Loess tour, Cynthia Gehrie offers a free mini-class in drawing.
This season the class introduces a way of drawing using mass instead of outlining.
It helps students to see the shape and proportion of objects, and develop a drawing
from the inside out. Many students have difficulty drawing using an outline of an object
because when they begin to develop the space inside their lines they discover the
proportions are wrong, and the object looks wrong.
The goal of the mini-class is to draw a lose sketch with freedom by developing it
freely using the inner architecture of an object. This sets up proportions correctly
and leads to a more accurate sketch, even if it is not drawn perfectly.
