Carbon Paper Drawing Workshop with Eylül Ceren Ersöz
The workshops I programmed under the roof of Quick Art Space continue in the new season. On September 29, Friday, 4 to 7 pm, we held a Carbon Paper Drawing Workshop in the lobby of Quick Tower, led by artist and instructor Eylül Ceren Ersöz.
Thanks to the transferring feature of carbon paper, we had the chance to improve our drawing skills by transferring the images we are interested in from magazines and newspapers on paper or wooden surfaces. Using carbon paper in different colors such as black, yellow and navy blue, we first practiced on paper surfaces, and then our instructor Eylül encouraged us to experiment on wooden surfaces.
Thirty five people attended the three-hour workshop. The materials for the workshop, which was open to everyone and free of charge, were provided by Quick Sigorta as usual.
