Art Explorers Charcoal Workshop

Art Explorers Charcoal Workshop.
September 14, 2012
Doha, Qatar

We had an interesting workshop, where we co-created with a medium that some of us take for granted – Charcoal. The style of drawing we referred to was that of American Dutch artist, Willem de Kooning. Participants were briefed on Kooning work, where several of his works were shared for study.

Charcoal is a versatile and dynamic medium.
While you can create extremely realistic, sensitive drawings with it, there is something about picking up that dusty stump of charcoal that frees us to go big, expressive and gestural. It’s a tool for drawing, shading and blending, but there is something psychologically different about using charcoal. It lets you get more expressive and work larger without getting stuck in details. No true artist can learn and improve his/her creations without working with charcoal.
