My workshop on sanguine drawing at the Oak Park Art League was a great experience. The class was full of enthusiastic, talented artists curious about the possibilities of traditional sanquine chalk as a drawing material.
I began the workshop with a short history and explanation of sanguine chalk as well as a demonstration on how to prepare the drawing sticks.
Afterwords we used the natural sanguine to draw from the nude for a couple of hours. Varying techiques and applications were explored. Below is a photo from the workshop. I am really looking foward to doing another class in the future.
