Instructor: Sarah Rutledge Fischer

Time: 10 am to 2 pm

Dates: Sept 14, 2019

Price: $100/90 members

A simple line, following the right winding path, can transform a blank page into a work of art. To find that path, students in this workshop will join local artist Sarah Rutledge Fischer in learning to slow their breath, ignore the chattering of the mind, press pencil to paper and trust their eyes and hands to work together to follow an object’s most essential lines.

The art of contour drawing requires nothing more than a pencil, a piece of paper, and a heart willing to let go of control.   No previous artistic experience required.  This workshop is open to anyone who can hold a pencil.


Light lunch provided.

All supplies will be provided but students are welcome to bring additional materials such as:

  • Large Drawing Paper (18 x 24 Newsprint or other)
  • Pencils (2B, 4B, 6B, or other)

Sarah Rutledge Fischer is a figurative artist living and working in Fairhope, AL.  Sarah is largely self-taught, acquiring most of her arts education at the easel, working beside other artists in figure study groups. The human figure is at the core of Sarah’s art, and her belief that all bodies are good bodies is on display in the variety of shape and form celebrated in beauty within her work. Her figures often come to the page with a story to tell, and in recent shows, Sarah has been pleased to discover that people connect strongly with these stories.
