AGGG: “Drawing for the Artist Within”

Contact Information:

864 878-0221

As a Painter and Teacher I emphasize the need for a solid foundation in drawing. I have had many students come to me who love painting, but admit they cannot draw a stick figure.

Before I begin a painting I work out many of the important aspects of that painting by  doing  thumbnail sketches that address composition, light, perspective and the values I plan to use in executing the image in color.

At the request of many of my students I will be offering a workshop on DRAWING FOR THE ARTIST WITHIN at the Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville, 200 N. Main St Greenville.

The class will begin on Monday March 16th  from 11-1:00 and meet each subsequent Monday for six weeks.

The cost of the workshop is $125.00. Materials and supplies are quite basic.

Supplies needed:  A sketch pad (at least 11 x 14), a set of drawing pencils, charcoal, eraser, if possible, a drawing board and a freestanding mirror (most dollar stores have them.).

The class will focus on retraining the eye, hand and brain to work together in capturing images from life, the effect of light and dark on objects and perspective. It will help the student to draw what they see, and more important, to SEE what they wish to draw.

Class size will be limited to eight students.  For more information and to send in your deposit contact Erin Cronin-Webb at 864 878-0221 or at  A $50 deposit is required to secure your place in the class.

Mission Statement:
Blank Canvas is here to provide samplings of art to students that don’t get to experience it at home, school or enough as he/she pleases. Art supplies can be expensive and schools are cutting funding for such programs. So Blank Canvas was created to make art an extra-curricular activity for those that want more. We are big believers in allowing freedom for our students to experiment with new supplies and see what they can create on their own. In addition, we provide some instruction that may help them down the road in their artistic pursuits.

 General Types of Classes :

Blank Canvas introduces and teaches students how to use charcoal, pencil, conte, and pastels in this course. In each class we will focus on one medium and complete two to three projects. Our projects range from abstract to realism and we always encourage creativity and teach a little bit of art history during each class.

Watercolor: Blank Canvas introduces and teaches students how to use watercolors in this course. In each class we will focus on art history and creative thinking. The students will complete two to three projects per class period.

Ceramics/Sculpture: Blank Canvas introduces and teaches students how to work with clay and sculpture materials. The first half of the course will be spent on ceramics. The students will learn the basic terminologies in ceramics as well as learn important techniques. During the sculpture section students will look to famous sculptors and create pieces inspired by the masters.

Painting: Blank Canvas introduces and teaches students how to paint in this course. In each class we will complete two to three projects. Our projects range from abstract to realism and we always encourage creativity and teach a little bit of art history during each class.
