Monday & Wednesday, October 5 - 14

Long desired for its bold contrasts and crisp line, ink drawing has been prized by artists from around the world through the centuries. Using inspiration from works in the Crocker’s collection of drawings and Wayne Thiebaud 100, learn how to create your own bold work while gaining skills in hatching, stippling, and ink wash. Enrollment closes October 2 at 10 AM.

Instructor Daphne Burgess is an African American artist from Sacramento, CA. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums including the Brickhouse Art Gallery, Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum, Sacramento State University, Crocker Art Museum, and the African American Museum and Library in Oakland, CA. Burgess relocated to Alabama in 2019 and opened a gallery and studio, Gallery 157. The goal of the space is to increase access to art experiences through exhibitions, workshops and collaboration.
