In this two-day workshop we will focus on accuracy as a way to develop a solid drawing approach. Through practice with composition, visual measuring amd material exploration we will create drawings whose sense of believability is grounded in correct proportions and perspective. Once the foundation of reality is established, we can work on developing a personal language of image making.

Jeffrey Marshall is a Gloucester based artist with a studio on the Morse-Sibley Wharf in East Gloucester, where he documents the endangered fishing industry of the city. He has a BFA from Cornell University and an MFA in painting and printmaking from the Massachusetts College of Art. He is a lifelong educator, most recently Associate Professor of Art Foundation at Mount Ida College. He currently teaches at Endicott College in the School of Visual and Performing Arts, as well as the Montserrat College of Art. His teaching career started with Teach for America in New Orleans where he taught elementary school. His New Orleans Drawing Project, a ten- year initiative to document the post-Katrina recovery of the city, was featured in The New York Times, Art New England, and Artscope Magazine. This work was exhibited at Endicott College, the College of the Holy Cross, and the Aspen Museum of Art among other venues. His recent body of work, Gone…Fishing, was exhibited at the Cape Ann Museum in the fall of 2018, and thereafter at the Jane Deering Gallery from December to January. This exhibition was featured in the November/ December issue of Art New England, and was chosen as a critic's pick by The Boston Globe. His work is done on-site from observation, and for the last three years has focused on the working waterfront of Gloucester.
