About This Class


Drawing is like reading - a skill that can be developed and honed; an activity that everyone can enjoy, even if you think you can't draw. By tapping into your intuitive side, and through 5 simple exercises, you will tap into your creativity, stretch your comfort zone and become more comfortable with drawing from your imagination.

If drawing is something you've always wanted to, then this is the class for you. If you already have experience drawing but want to push yourself out of your comfort zone or find new ways to get over creative blocks, this class is also for you!

This one is called "Light-years away, stars turn to dust."
