‘Put A Bird On It’
Heather McLaughlin, who manages the
printmaking studio at Pacific Northwest
College of Art, will teach a drawing work-
shop focusing on observational drawing
with sumi ink.
The class, titled “Drawing as Seeing &
the Acceptance of Chaos,” will be held 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25.
Whereas pencils and pens lend them-
selves to contours and patterns, sumi ink
captures light and shapes.
During this four-hour workshop, stu-

will cover techniques for recording scale,

The cost is $40, plus a $10 material fee
