Drawing Workshop with Lisbeth Firmin

Urban realist painter and printmaker Lisbeth Firmin will be teaching “Drawing with the Right Side of the Brain,” a five-day workshop held at MURAL Gallery in Hobart, NY, Monday through Friday, August 28 – September 1. Firmin is known for works such as Fifth Avenue (1995), and Woman on a Train (2014). This past spring she traveled to Venice, and enrolled in Scuola Internationale di Grafica where she perfected her monotype printing technique. Firmin is one of the artists featured in “How Art Is Made: In the Catskills.”

This workshop will explore drawing as it relates to the right and left brain hemispheres, based on the work of Dr. Betty Edwards. Participants will learn basic strategies of seeing that will enable them to draw with a high degree of skill.
