(LIVE ONLINE) Experiential Drawing

Levels: All levels

Offered: Thursdays, October 8-29, 2020, 2-3:30pm

Instructor: Robert Regis Dvorák


Experiential Drawing is a revolutionary drawing method that transcends technical rules. You will learn to draw using your creative experience. Want to learn to draw? Or would you like to let go of tight drawing habits?  Experiential Drawing is for beginners, artists, and teachers who want to learn an approach to drawing that will guide you to new levels of creativity and awareness through the experience of drawing. In a safe non-competitive environment you will learn to:

  • Express yourself drawing with imagination and skill
  • Draw decisively
  • Draw quickly and effortlessly from your experience
  • Master the Zen-like ability to be present as you draw
  • How to practice drawing for a lifetime of enjoyment

This is a non-judgmental drawing workshop outlined in Mr. Dvorak’s book, Experiential Drawing. Many of the exercises are innovative and unusual; others employ new applications to methods familiar to some artists. Those with no drawing skills as well as those who draw and would like to move more deeply into their artistic processes are welcome. This is not an ordinary drawing course.
