Drawing Shells Big in Charcoal

By Sheila Ceccarelli

Drawing shells on a large scale was the theme of a workshop for teenagers that introduced basic steps to creating form and tonal shading in drawings.  This session was inspired by Paula Brigg’s workshop for children aged 6 to 10, See Three Shapes and the simplicity of her step by step approach.

Many thanks to the University Museum of Zoology, Cambridge, for their kind loan of shells.
