Time & Location

Arts Council of White Lake-Nuveen Center, 106 E Colby St, Whitehall, MI 49461, USA


About the event

Based on the famous image of drawing hands by M C Escher, we will combine photographs and drawing to create a mixed media work. Have fun creating a real/surreal work, as you extend the photographic image of your own hands drawing. We will learn some drawing techniques, as we shade around the hand photos to make the artwork look three dimensional. You will incorporate creative drawing as you fill in around you hands and complete the image.
