When you start drawing an ordinary object, you learn how extraordinary it really is. Capture this experience with artist and Lord Fairfax Community College professor, Ann Currie as you learn how to use colored pencils and graphite to create expressive, luminous drawings of locally grown plants and flowers. Techniques will be discussed and demonstrated and no prior drawing experience is necessary.   All necessary materials and supplies will be provided. All experience levels welcome!

Ann Currie received her MFA from James Madison University where she specialized in papermaking and sculpture. She was a Professor of Art and Art History at Lord Fairfax Community College until her retirement in 2010, and continues there as a teaching adjunct.  As an artist who explores a variety of mediums, she is very interested in layers of visual interest and sculptural presence.  Ms. Currie is a member of the Middle Street Gallery in Sperryville, VA. Ann Currie's botanical watercolors are on view in the MSV Beauty in Botany exhibition through October 31, 2015.
