Sid’s Studio: Drawing with Cut-Outs

In this three-session adult workshop led in person by local artist Dan Jian, each participant will create a landscape drawing using charcoal dust through the process of cut-outs. First students will identify an image motif, then draw with charcoal pencil and dust, and finally, use scissors, an X-Acto knife, and glue to create a personal and introspective landscape inspired by the Sid Richardson Museum’s collection of paintings set against an American West landscape.
