Drawing with #31... Degas!

Degas drawings exude grace and elegance, be it a drawing of horses or a portrait of a handsome man or a group of poised ballerinas.

Copying Master’s works is always a great way to get an in depth understanding of the artistic identity of an artist, appreciate details in an artwork that would normally go unnoticed, gain a deeper knowledge of an artist’s technique. In this 2:30 hour online session of the series “Drawing with…” we will copy a few of Degas drawings executed in a variety of dry media: charcoal and chalk, graphite, crayons, focusing on the expressive and dynamic qualities that these works capture so convincingly.



  • A few sheets of drawing paper, toned and white, charcoal in pencil or sticks in hard and medium gradations, (Nitram, Wollf’s Carbon, General’s are all good brands),
  • white chalk I sticks or pencils, a couple of colored pencils in dark blue or brown,
  • graphite pencils in B or 2B gradations.
