Art workshop on perspective offered in Rockland

Jan 16, 2020
"Library from Amphitheater" by Bob Richardson.

Rockland — Knox County Art Society (KCAS) is offering a workshop on applying the principles of perspective to drawing on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Downtown Art Studio (aka the Art Loft), which is Suite #9 in the Thorndike Building, 385 Main St. The workshop is for both beginners and those who need a refresher. For more information or to register, contact David Blanchard at or 200-7915.

Perspective can be challenging for artists at all levels. Artist and educator Bob Richardson will teach this workshop with empathy and gentle direction to change the way participants perceive their surroundings. This class will not emphasize a mathematical approach but will still have students drawing more believable shapes that become buildings, watercraft, and human figures.

A resident of Camden, Richardson works as a designer, printmaker, and painter in genres both representational and abstract and in various mediums. After earning a BFA from Tufts University and The School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and an MAE from The Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford, he taught art at schools throughout New England. Richardson’s remarkable life drawings have inspired artists in the Camden Life Drawing group for years.

KCAS is a membership organization open to all artists, from amateur to professional. Beginning in March, KCAS will offer a wide range of instructional classes and workshops in the Downtown Art Studio, which will be open to members and the public. Members receive advance program announcements and discounts. For more information, visit the Knox County Art Society page on Facebook.
