Your Personal Art Director! There is a reason that advertising agencies have Art Directors. Everyone can benefit from highly-tuned professional criticism of their work. Participants in this one-day workshop will submit an image of their 2-D work to the instructor one week prior to the class meeting.

Enrollees will then attend the one-day workshop to see how Richard would improve the work. Participants will learn from their own piece as well as from seeing the work of others.

Each student will get a high quality digital image of their work – adjusted in Photoshop to create a better visual design. Through this Before-and-After process, students will learn surprising principles of how to engage audience visually and how to eliminate distracting elements from their work.

“Richard took individual time with each student which is something I don’t see often in the workshops I take. Wonderful!!!”

“Richard Drayton was probably one of the best instructors I have run across. He was extremely informative and helpful, not condescending or “full of himself”, spent a lot of time with each individual student, had us working on different things and was a lot of fun! I got a lot out of the workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’d recommend his workshops to anyone.”

Artist Richard Drayton has come full circle. After a long career as a highly successful illustrator and graphic designer, Drayton has returned to his initial dream of working as a fine artist and naturalist. Richard masterfully applies to his work a disciplined eye for detail and a brilliant sense of design and color. He perfected and fine tuned these qualities during his years as a commercial artist and developed many special techniques in a variety of media, which remain uniquely his own.

“Nature’s Bounty” offers a unique look into the expressive worlds of some of the Southwest’s most inspiring artists. Each month, Sedona Arts Center offers a new gallery exhibition featuring incredible local artists.
