1 hour lunch, bring your own.
Sunday 12/4/2011, 10:00am – 2:00pm,
1 hour lunch, bring your own.

Workshop location
1811 Huguenot Road, #304
Midlothian, VA 23113

$225.00 this includes your drawing paper and the frame!

Every year Robert draws a special drawing that encompasses the holiday season which he then uses for his holiday greetings card. Robert is giving you a special opportunity to join him on a two day workshop where you will draw along with him creating the same drawing that he is. The drawing is a surprise and you will not know what it is until the day of the workshop. It will of course have a bird in it, in past years he has used a snow man, snow woman and holiday lights. Wonder what it will be this year?

All you need to bring to this class is your drawing pencils (see material list below), and your patience! Robert will be supplying the drawing paper, the same paper that he uses, a 300lb. Arches water color paper that will already be prepped for drawing along with the contour drawing of the drawing. 

At the conclusion of the workshop on Sunday we will be scanning your image so that you may have a printable image that you can then turn around and use for your own holiday greeting cards. Also included with this workshop is a frame, mat and glass that Robert will help you assemble so that you can display your original drawing during the holidays for years to come.

The drawing when finished will be a 5 x 8 drawing and the frame will be a black 9x12 with a off-white double mat and glass.

**Lunch is bring your own, we have several places close by to ArtHaus that can be driven to and lunch brought back. Robert will more than likely be going over to Fresh Market to get his and anyone can join him!
