Elio began his demo with a rough block in.

He continued to develop the painting, paying attention to the warm/cool harmonies.

Elio continued to assess the overall harmony and value relationships as he worked over the entire surface of the painting.

Announcing David Lobenberg Workshop: Learning the 6 Universal Skill Sets of Drawing


In this weekend workshop (four hours each day), David will cover the six primary skill sets of drawing: Angles, Proportion, Position, Contour, Value, and Shape. David will present, discuss, and demonstrate each skill set, then follow up with an exercise specifically designed to effectively practice that skill set. The presentation order of skill sets is designed to be cumulative so that participants can continue to practice previously-taught skill sets in their exercises as they work with the most recently-taught skill set. David’s approach to teaching has evolved from his many years of instructing college students. Participants will be provided with all of the necessary drawing supplies and objects to draw as part of the workshop format.

To register for this drawing workshop, please email David at:
and send your $160 tuition check to David at: 741 48th Street, Sacramento, CA 95819.
 Workshop dates and times is as follows: Oct. 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. 

Workshop location is at the Patris Studio and Gallery at 3460 2nd Ave., Sacramento, CA 95817.
