About This Class

Welcome to part 2 in my series of freehand design sketching classes!

I'm very excited to share this class with you since we will be covering one of my favorite topics - ellipses. 

Based on the feedback I got from you, ellipses is something that a lot of you are struggling with.

It can be hard to get them smooth and consistent, but I'm going to show you a few simple techniques I've learned through the years that will make sketching ellipses a whole lot easier. 

At the end of the class, we are going to sketch c chair using almost nothing but ellipses. Fun stuff! 

I will see you inside :)
