This class is for beginners. 

This class will focuses on teaching you how to “see” and then draw instead of drawing from memory or perceptions of what something should look like. Fundamental drawing techniques will be taught. Each class will have a short learning concept, technique or demonstration with plenty of time for you to work on your own drawings.

This class will teach you:

  • Basic drawing concepts and terminology
  • Shading, tone & value techniques for creating dimension and depth
  • How to use textures and different types of marks
  • Tips and tricks for making more accurate drawing
  • The art of sketching
