Artifact Illustration Class

Learn How to Draw Chipped Stone

The San Diego Archaeological Center is proud to host Donna Walker for an artifact drawing workshop. Unlike other professions where digital technology has replaced traditional methods, researchers in archaeology still rely on the detailed drawings that an illustrator can produce. Just open an archaeological report, magazine, or book, and you’ll find the majority of stone tools and pottery are shown as hand-done line drawings along with the photographs. Having both photographs and illustrations provides a complete analysis and a better representation of the artifact. In this class, you’ll learn this valuable technical skill of drawing chipped stone tools.

Art supplies and snacks will be provided. To register, call 858-829-5861 or email donna.walker05@gmail.com and bring cash or check on day of class.
