Beginning Drawing: Charcoal Reduction
Sorry, this class has been canceled. Please call for more information: 231-334-6112.
Spend two days learning to draw with Freemont Thomas and let him inspire you into a lifetime of love for drawing with this unique technique. Charcoal Reduction is a method of drawing where light charcoal dust is put onto the paper. The artist then adds line and actually pulls charcoal off with an eraser at areas to be lightened. It is a great way to think about the two biggest needs in illusory art — light and dark. It is also a great way to draw quickly so a finished drawing can be completed within the parameters of this course. His manner of teaching is a no pressure approach based on your self-learning with his gentle nudging and suggestion. He believes creativity trumps skill but the two together is what really makes art exemplary.
Fremont Thompson received his BFA from Detroit’s Center for Creative Studies, his MFA from Detroit’s Wayne State. He owns a Commercial Construction Company and teaches drawing at three Detroit area community colleges. He also lectures on anatomy and painting. Fremont’s drawings and paintings are in both national and international collections.
