About This Class

Let’s be real here: Sketching is both an art and a science. In this class, Mary will help you get started with basic sketching techniques. First be sure to snag the DIY Kit that includes all the supplies you'll need here.

You’ll start by going over class materials and a few simple techniques. As you continue, she’ll break down the steps to sketch a few different types of natural florals and leaves. She’ll also talk through how to hold your pencil, how to create shadows and how to color in your sketch to create a 3D effect. By the end, you’ll be able to use these simple techniques to create a dramatic effect and a conversation-worthy custom art piece. Bonus! All of your friends will be totally jealous.
