Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Carbon Drawing & Painting Workshop

Course Code: ARTS2348

Learn to make visually striking, realistic images using dry carbon painting techniques with graphite, carbon and charcoal pencils. This dry pigment technique was created by the medical illustrator, Max Brodel at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in the 1940s. Smooth, grey, shiny effects can be achieved if using graphite pencils. Rich, black matte finish can be achieved if using charcoal or carbon pencils. Line variation, contrast in value, and texture will be the main focus of instruction while studying a variety of subjects. Coloured media can be added as an option. Techniques will be demonstrated, but individual interpretation will be encouraged. All skill levels are welcome.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
