About This Class

One of the greatest struggles beginning artists have is developing a drawing style that feels natural to them.  Through this expressive build-up method, we use a variety of drawing media and methods to find a common ground that could be your natural style.  

As this is expressive drawing, we won't be focused on realism or perfect proportions.  This is about creating art that is stylized and personal to what your hand wants to create.   

Tools used in the class:

6h pencil

2b pencil

colored marker

Manga pen

Black dry erase marker

black charcoal pencil

white charcoal pencil

Liquid paper
