Purpose Drawing, painting and sculpture are often considered to be very different, but many artists today routinely combine these elements in their work. This workshop will demonstrate simple ways in which paint, drawing and ordinary materials can be combined with things that create a line to delineate a feeling or emotion and/or a boundary or territory in both traditional and abstract ways by using inexpensive items. Just come and have fun!
