Eastern Market Art Series and Teachings Online Workshop: Contour Drawing with Costume and Fashion Designer Darrell Cortez (Free)
Sunday, December 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Darrell Cortez and SWAG Works DC are teaming up for EAST’S last virtual workshop for the year on December 6! Darrell will be teaching kids the art of contour drawing through self-portraits. Inspired by the likes of Pablo Picasso, he will show kids how tracing the lines of our faces gives us a completely new way of imagining how we view ourselves.
Darrell is a fashion and costume designer; wardrobe stylist, art director, and most recently certified culinary chef. His new catchphrase and hashtag, #FoodFashion is a combination of his two passions of fashion and culinary. He is the owner and CEO of DARRELL CORTEZ COMPANY, his umbrella company which encompasses his DARRELL CORTEZ MENSWEAR fashion label of men’s sportswear. You can see his work on his Instagram at @darrellcortez
