A Little Perspective Drawing

The Conservatory of the Plains is hosting Professor Ron Clark, an artist and sculptor, for a two-day afternoon art workshop. The workshop will cover perspective drawing, and students will have the opportunity to learn how to better draw our area’s unique structures.

Professor Clark will teach the 500-year-old perspective system through instruction and on-site drawing practice. The course will begin with an introduction to Brunelleschi’s perspective drawing mechanics and contour drawing techniques; it will culminate with on-site drawing in downtown Perryton.

The workshop will take place Saturday, October 5 from 1 to 3 p.m. in room 113 at Frank Phillips College Allen Campus. On Sunday, October 6 from 1 to 4 p.m., students will head downtown and get hands-on experience as they draw the Equity grain elevators. They will apply perspective drawing techniques to exaggerate the feeling of depth on the picture plane. 

Students must be 16 years or older. The workshop is $50 per student. Participants should bring pencils, a straight edge, and thick- and thin-line black markers. The course is limited to 16 students. Registration is Saturday, September 28 in room 113 at Frank Phillips College Allen Campus from 1 to 3 p.m. Attendees should enter through the north entrance.
