Drawing for Beginners

If you have always wanted to develop your drawing skills, or even have no experience, this is the class for you.

Each week you will learn new techniques:

  • Improve your observations skills

  • Understand the importance of placement and proportion

  • Practice shading to get that magic contrast that makes a drawing look so real.

Intermediate Drawing

Each week you will learn a new technique with time to practice as well as time to work on a drawing of your choosing.

Lots of individual attention so that you can achieve that amazing drawing you see in your mind’s eye.

If you have never taken a drawing course before then this class is not for you. The Beginners Drawing Class is where I suggest you start.

This class assumes you are familiar with basic drawing techniques like shading and and understand proportion.

Bring a reference to work from the first day of class.
