Drawing with White Charcoal on Black paper with Craig Goudie

This workshop will be an exploration of drawing techniques and approaches which I
find very suited to the medium of white charcoal. I have found these techniques to be
very constructive when I work in other drawing and painting media, as well. I believe the
real value of this session will be how it can serve to guide your next drawings and
paintings;’s another way to approach how you make your art.

A white charcoal pencil, blending stomp and two pieces of black Arches paper (approx.
10 x 15 inches, ea.) will be provided for each participant. You may want to bring along
your ‘regular drawing tools’ as well (pencils, sketchbook, erasers; I find those white mars
plastic Staedler erasers particularly good). We’ll be working on tables and I’m not sure
if the table tops are textured or not, so it might be a good idea to bring along a ‘drawing
board’ or something with a firm, smooth surface to accommodate your paper.

Registration will take place, starting on September 3rd by emailing  or contacting Robert Lodge at 489-9304. You can make an e- transfer payment to, using the password registration or call Robert at 489-9304  if you wish to use cash or a cheque.  Payment for the workshops is due at the time of registration, and that is the only way to confirm your participation in the workshop.  If you have questions, you can reach us at:
