The Barnard Mill Art League will host a drawing workshop with Richard Harvey on May 23-24 at the Luminant building. Because of his ability to create highly realistic images, Harvey is recognized as one of the premier pencil artists in the industry.

While most artists tend to focus on a limited number of subjects, Harvey is accomplished in a broad and diverse range of subjects including Native American, western, wildlife, architectural, figurative, human and animal portraits, and even cartooning.

“I can teach anyone to draw if they are willing to work hard and perfect their skills,” Harvey said. “I try to impart to my students that they can be exceptional artists regardless of the subject and style they choose.”

Harvey’s drawings are found in private collections throughout the United States as well as in Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, Australia, New Zealand and several European countries. In addition to teaching drawing classes and conducting workshops, Richard Harvey is writing a book, The Art of Pencil.

If you are interested in taking the workshop, contact Joyce Selby at the CVB or call 897-3081.

The Barnard Mill Art League is open to all artists and meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. at the Luminant Building.
