Wednesday, November 8th

Features David Bigelow, Artist and Educator 


1:00-3:00 p.m. in The Gallery 

National Avenue Christian Church

1515 South National Avenue

David Bigelow will demonstrate and discuss the concept of drawing faces using value instead of line. Participants will have the opportunity to draw right along with him, both during and after the program. Materials will be provided, or you can use your own. He will also display some of his etchings and drawings and share his love of using humor in his creative process. “I am serious about humor. I draw to get ideas, then keep drawing to make them clearer and funny…titles come last to explain it. The goal is serious art with humorous content.” said Bigelow. Some of his work can be found at or on Facebook David Bigelow Printmaker.

David Bigelow was born and raised in Michigan. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Art in printmaking and painting and a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking and drawing, both from the University of Michigan. He taught at six different institutions and is currently teaching at Evangel University in Springfield, MO. David and his wife Marcia operate Bigelow Studios where he creates and sells his etchings and drawings. He sells his work internationally on line, through galleries, direct marketing, art fairs and juried competitions and shows.  

Visitors and members are invited to "show and share" their art following the program. 

This event is free and open to the public.
