Virtual Drawing Group: Three Tone Series
5 – 6 PM
Weekly Prompt: Three Tone Series: Create a series of three figure drawings on different toned papers or backgrounds.
On Thursday evenings, Art Omi hosts Open Figure Drawing for Adults, where a group of artists gathers in the Newmark Gallery to sketch, draw, and render from a live model. While current circumstances prevents us from gathering in person, we're thrilled to invite members of Art Omi's far-flung community to join us for the Virtual Drawing Group!
Every week, members of the Virtual Drawing group respond to a new drawing prompt. The group then gathers via Zoom to then share and discuss on Thursday evenings at 5 pm. Please note that registration to the weekly Zoom meet-up is capped, and pre-registration is required.
You can also participate by tagging your drawings on Instagram or Facebook! Use #artomi and #educationomi to share your work. All styles and media welcome — show us your creative best!

How can we take control of the stories that we tell ourselves and others? This class will focus on creating character and storytelling through figurative sculpture. There will be an emphasis on developing a personal artistic style through character design and the utilization of motifs and symbols. Inspired by artists of the past and present, students will use a variety of tools, materials, and techniques as they consider figurative poses, the power of gesture, and understand how to develop their own visual language. Representational or abstract, there are no boundaries as to what you can create in this multimedia workshop! Students will be assigned to their very own studio space in our residency Barn. No prior experience necessary.
How does an artist develop their own personal “voice”? In this course we will focus on ways to convey ideas and feelings while painting from observation by using color, expressive brushwork, and a range of techniques in paint application. Students will build fundamental skills in oil painting through explorations in color mixing, value, and composition. Daily presentations of work by contemporary painters and their studio processes will inform our goal of learning to find inspiration in the world around us. During the week, students will participate in quick studio games and exercises while also creating one or more finished oil paintings on canvas based on the landscape and sculpture at Art Omi. No prior experience is necessary!
