About This Class

Creative Process: Art Essentials is a "stand-alone" series of learning the basic skills of Fine Art.

This fine art class is designed for the beginner who wants to learn one of the most important drawing basics which is gesture. Gesture drawing expresses the "feeling of movement" by using passionate flowing lines to describe what you are seeing. Not only will you learn gesture but mass, active, and progressive gestures. Hand and eye coordination skills are formed in the process of drawing these linear gestures. You will learn to draw in a way that is natural and intuitive.

This class is fast paced with quick and easy "follow along" drawing exercises.  It's really an amazing class and you will be rewarded to see your drawing skills improve! Watch your own style develop. Join in on the fun!

  • Improve line quality
  • Draw passionate gestures
  • Draw from observation 
  • Exercises in "really looking" at what you see 
  • Create expressive lines
  • Develop artistic understanding of art
