About This Class

This class will cover the very basic elements of art. Learning to draw can be daunting and downright intimidating. How often do you hear people say they can't even draw a stick figure? This class is a low-key, no pressure approach to the art of drawing as well as how artists see in the first place. We will go through each element individually, put them into practice, and then combine the elements at the end to produce a simple 3-dimensional composition.

These are the basic building blocks! You gotta start somewhere...
