About This Class

If you're a complete beginner looking for a place to start or you want to commit to the basics after years of never fully comprehending them, this is the perfect course for you!

In this class, we will narrow the very broad topic of art into a much smaller subsection - drawing 2D and 3D shapes. If you think of drawing like building with blocks, the first step is to obtain the blocks. This is what 2D and 3D shapes are to drawing. Without them, the best case scenario is that you will struggle to draw and the worst case scenario is that you will be completely incapable.  

The good news is that it is fairly simple to learn to draw these shapes, and if you understand why it is that they are drawn in the way they are, you will be well on your way to advancing your artistic journey. So join me in this class as we learn to draw shapes!

Hi, thanks for visiting! I'm Jordan, and I've been an artist and storyteller all my life.

I've always been intrigued by the arts and the sciences alike, and this curiosity has an impact on the way that I approach my artwork and life in general. The most important thing to me has always and will always be the emotion people get from experiencing my work. I want people to feel something, and I hope that I can help encourage you as well.
