About This Class

At first glance, the art of drawing hands can seem intimidating and complex. While it is true that a hand is made up of many parts, creating beautiful hands can be fun, relaxing - and you can get started NOW!

In this class, you will learn:

  • How to break the human hand down into basic, geometric shapes
  • The rhythm of the hand - meaning the patterns of anatomy that all hands will follow
  • How the hand moves
  • How to draw hands from various angles

Hands may seem scary, but with a bit of knowledge and some practice, you’ll be enjoying the process of creating dynamic, graceful, or powerful hands in no time. Let’s do this!
