About This Class

bc76b321

In this class, we’ll walk through basic fundamentals to build your drawing skills!

You'll learn how to see your subjects as basic shapes, how to place your subject on your paper with simple angles, and how to draw by seeing the negative space. I'll share measuring tricks that will help you draw accurately, exercises that will help you activate your creative right brain, and I'll share how you can find beautiful rhythms in your subjects.

We'll also go over five project ideas to help you practice the techniques learned in class. From drawing from life to drawing from the masters, I'll demonstrate my personal approach and how I apply the techniques in each example.

If you've always wanted to learn how to draw, but have been scared to start, join in today to learn new ways of seeing the world around you.

I'd love to help you in your journey of drawing. So grab a pencil and paper and jump into class!
