Museum Education Specialist Laura Desmond says, “Charcoal is a responsive and forgiving medium. It’s also a lot of fun to use, is a great tool for loosening up your drawing hand, is useful for exploring light and contrast, and for developing your understanding of tonal values. It’s also messy; participants are asked to dress appropriately.”
