Contour Drawing: One-day class with Caro at the Aborigines Museo

Contour drawing is line drawing in the simplest form of linear expression, resulting in an image of strength, clarity, and simplicity. The technique involves drawing a complete subject in one line without lifting your pen or pencil from the paper! Blind contour drawing is where you draw a contour of the subject without looking at the paper. These forms of drawing are fun and easy and anyone can do it.

Cuenca’s Museo de las Culturas Aborigenes (Museum of Aboriginal Culture) on Calle Larga displays the private collection of Juan Cordero Iñiguez, historian, professor, former provincial governor and former director of Cuenca’s Banco Central Museum.

Ecuadorean artifacts you will be able to choose from to draw include stone tools, jewelry, cooking utensils, ceremonial drinking cups, funerary urns and masks. While you’re drawing, you’ll learn more about the early cultures of Ecuador: the Valdivia, Machalilla, Narrio, Quitis, Bahia and Cañari.

A delicious (included) lunch will be served in the museum’s large, sunny atrium.

You’ll want to bring a sturdy sketchbook or a clipboard to hold paper while you draw, plus drawing or ink pens and pencils (no erasers).

The class fee of $45. may be paid via cash, paypal or major credit card.
