Degas Impressionist Drawings – “Creating a Still Life” 
Instructor: Julie Terhaar, BFA, Illustration and Painting, Savannah College of Art and Design

Explore the impressionist style of Degas drawings. Beginning with a simple still life students will construct a pleasing composition learning the art of gesture drawing and the use of willow charcoal along with pastel to create depth and value to their piece just as Degas created.
