50 Ways to Draw San Francisco Fog

, Artist, Educator

If you get people from San Francisco talking about fog or burritos, they'll never shut up. 

In this class you'll learn 50 ways to use a variety of mixed media to draw San Francisco fog as it cascades over twin peaks into the mission. Bring your own burrito.

We'll use fog as an example, but the myriad techniques you learn in this class will be useful for all your art practice.

This session will be a crash course in how to use all sorts of pencils, markers, pastels, crayons, paints, collage, transfers, etc... employing all sorts of styles.  About half of the class will consist of demonstration time, and the other half will be time to play with the materials. The symbolic possibilities of fog will not be ignored.

You will go home with an expanded knowledge of drawing materials, techniques and styles to unleash in your own art and doodles. 

You will also have the art you made during the class and a hand-out listing all 50 drawing methods.

Art materials will be provided, but do bring a pencil and consider bringing drinks or snacks to share.

*Though we will look at various shading techniques, this class has nothing to do with the book "50 Shades of Gray."

Likely location will be the Women's Building, 3543 18th St in SF.

Please, take some time to appreciate the beauty of San Francisco fog before coming to class.

Artist, Educator

Todd Berman is an artist with over a decade of experience creating art with and about communities in San Francisco. He is a compulsive drawer who cannot count the number of ways he has represented fog in is drawings and paintings. You'll find some examples on his website, TheArtDontStop.com.

"A serious devotee of San Francisco since he relocated here from NYC more than 10 years ago, Berman is not content to try to capture the spirit of the entire city single-handedly. Instead, he has recruited citizens young and old to draw pictures of themselves and bring them to Mission Pie, where Berman has collaged them onto his wildly vibrant San Francisco landscapes that emphasize the wonders of our unique geography."
