DRAWING 101 (“Drawing for Absolute Beginners!”

Anyone can draw… this means you! In this fun, step-by-step class, aimed at total beginners, we’ll work our way through a number of exercises designed to train your eye, hand and imagination to work together as a unit, or a team. Most students notice striking improvement in their artwork as the class moves along.

You’ll learn to how to draw objects based on simple shapes, and how to add shading and textures to make your drawings look real and three-dimensional. You’ll have fun, learn a lot, and get off to a good start.
