Most traditional line drawings are done in pencil, pen or charcoal. However Henri Matisse learned to draw line with his scissors later in life and “Sandy” Calder created his line with wire! This workshop will explore the expressive nature of line first developing a contour portrait with pencil and ink and then with flexible wire. Students may add textural collage materials to finalize and  a touch of color to their project.
