Good drawing skills are the foundation for success and happiness in all art mediums and this is a great place to start! If you think you have NO drawing skills this is for you. If you have the knack for drawing but have not had much additional training, this class will definitely be an asset to make the whole drawing process much easier. I promise, you will be challenged!

This fun and lively class will teach students how to understand and apply basic drawing skills in order to give them a solid foundation to progress into further art applications as they mature. Students will be taught how to see objects as they really are and apply that knowledge to render a subject as it really is. Students will also be encouraged to allow their individual drawing style to shine. They will gain a new appreciation for how things are created and be taught to really look at a subject, separating it out in their mind to build it back up on paper. We will use a variety of pencils and approach each project in a different way so that students will know how to begin to “see” in order to draw. This class will be held with a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 8 people. Please email me if you would like to sign up:
