FAQ

Are your drawing classes open to beginners?

Yes. However, if you’re brand new at drawing, we do recommend that you start with “Drawing for Absolute Beginners” or “Learn to Draw in a Day.” But if you’re already comfortable with drawing and sketching, it’s fine to just take whatever classes look interesting, in any order.

What you learn in one class will make the others even easier, but they’re each meant to stand on their own.

Do students need to bring anything to the classes?  

You can either bring your own materials, or, for most of the classes, buy a kit in class. See the course descriptions for more details.

Are these one day drawing workshops? Or ongoing classes?

Some of our drawing classes meet for several weeks. Others are one day workshops, or “one night wonders” which are complete in on evening. All of them are fun learning experiences, and are great for beginners.

Which class or classes should you take?

It depends on your goals. If you’re brand new to drawing, we recommend taking either Drawing for Absolute Beginners or Learn to Draw in a Day first… then take anything else that looks fun.
