About the Workshop

Seed Studio Sacramento (
1017 25th Street, Sacramento CA 95816 (MAP and DIRECTIONS)

In this three-day charcoal sanding workshop, students will develop a greater use of value, and increase their understanding of light sources and their effects through learning charcoal sanding techniques.

We will be creating a community of learners ready to tackle a new and demanding approach to art. Introductory through advanced students will work on drawing from plaster casts using the sanding method, both from life as well as from photographic reference.

Intermediate through advanced students can pick a reference provided (plaster cast and photo) or provide their own reference from which to draw. If you are a returning charcoal sander, please email me what you plan on drawing, or what you would like to draw from the reference I provide.

Students can expect to learn all of the techniques required to create beautiful, rich black and white artworks, from minute details (sanding tips, different grades of sandpaper and how to deal with “problem” areas) to toning larger areas. Returning learners can expect to move into more complex textures and compositions.
