If you’re a practicing designer, visual artist, letterer or illustrator wanting to gain confidence, improve your drawing techniques and make work that stands out, this workshop is for you.

Over the course of this 5-hour workshop, I will teach you how to evolve your natural drawing style and apply your own custom artwork to a blank skateboard. You will create a handful of experimental sketches on paper and a customized skateboard deck of your very own. You will also receive a limited edition Art of Skate print, and a variety of paint markers, pens & pencils.

All supplies will be provided, as well as coffee and snacks.

My name is Eric Friedensohn (aka Efdot). I’m a designer, artist and skateboarder from New York, currently based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I create murals, installations and live art experiences for companies like WeWork, Heineken, Mozilla and Blick Art Materials. I’ve has also taught workshops at Vayner Media, HUGE, Drexel University and more.

My work takes on many different forms but the ethos remains the same: Taking complex ideas / emotions and distilling them down into bold, colorful imagery.

Is this workshop out of your budget? Approach your employer about funding your enrollment fee. Does your company have an employee education budget? Ask whether your employer will pay for your workshop up front or with enrollment fee reimbursement as your new skills will make a positive impact on creativity and revenue. Spaces are limited, so the sooner you start, the better your chances of landing a spot. This is a valuable, one-of-a-kind workshop you don’t want to miss.
