The Color of Light and the Light of Color: Exploring new luminance through historical precedent and a pastel drawing demonstration by artist Emil Robinson.
Open to the public!
Join us for a FIGURE DRAWING DEMONSTRATION and DISCUSSION led by celebrated local artist and educator EMIL ROBINSON!

Robinson, along with special guest artists ELLINA CHETVERIKOVA and TAYLOR WOOLWINE will draw for approximately 2 ½ hours with a brief wine/refreshment intermission, and conclude with an audience-inclusive discussion session.
