"Drawing Figures" 3-Day Workshop w/ Patty Forte Linna

June 6-8 Friday trough Sunday 10:30am-5:30pm



This will be a super fun 3-day workshop in a very positive atmosphere.  Don't be intimidated – Patty will start out simple and build from there.  Not only is she a very accomplished instructor, she has a unique gift of encouraging the individual artist and creating an environment where nothing is impossible.

 Join this beloved teacher as she takes you through various skill-building exercises, starting with simple shapes and ending with a beautiful drawing ( or two or three!).  Students who have studied with Patty leave her classes amazed at what they have accomplished and encouraged in who they are as an artist.  You will be able to draw people like a pro!

You can spend a lot of money getting every supply on every teacher's supply list.   I only have a few supplies that you absolutely must have.  Beyond that, bring supplies you already own and have on hand....especially your favorite things to play with...whatever they are,  including but not limited to:

Watercolor dyes, colored ink, watercolors, gouache, pastels, oil pastels, brush pens (Pitt is a great brand), Sharpie pens in any color and tip size, Micron pens, gelly roll pens, marker pens, paint brushes and bamboo reed pens.


Necessary Supplies for the Class:

Eraser :

  • (your choice)


  • soft vine, hard stick of black, charcoal pencil, white charcoal

Watercolor or water soluable product:

  • You can bring as little as one tube of watercolor (dark) and one flat watercolor brush or as many tubes  and brushes as you like.  

 Calligraphy Set:

  • Speedball Elegant Writer 4-pen


  • A good 'Mix Media Sketch Book' (paper can handle watercolor/pen and pencil)

If you want to invest in pastel paper and watercolor paper that would be good too. Those papers will allow you to work better with pastel and watercolor.

Here are some suggestions for additional paper :
