Have a go yourself at this drawing workshop with artist Norton Asbury, who will help you create your own drawings based on a mixture of close-looking at paintings, personal interpretation, and invention.

Experiment with drawing techniques including the use of line, tone, texture, and scale, as well as the principles of composition.
