About This Class

Freehand drawing means drawing from life without any pencil sketches underneath. There are many reasons to learn freehand drawing--It impresses people, it improves your drawing skills (even if you will normally sketch first), and my favorite reason: it feels AWESOME. Freehand drawing is like a cross between riding a roller coaster and mediation. Blank pages are scary in a delicious way, watching images appear from nothing is thrilling, and the rhythm of observing and making marks is centering. You can tap into this experience in just minutes, using less than $10 in supplies--even if you get the fancy supplies I will recommend.  In this class, you will learn to look for lines in everyday objects, and transfer those lines faithfully onto paper for your project, you will will be examining an object from your house or nature, and drawing it freehand! I'll also give you drills to train your hands, and you are welcome to share your progress!

Hello, I'm Jinjer. I studied Plant Biology in graduate school and I taught Middle School Science, but I never stopped drawing. I'm currently making art into a career as well as a deeply relaxing and satisfying hobby. Whether art is your career or hobby, or an item on your bucket list, I hope you find my classes useful!
