What Will You Learn?

  • How to use each tool successfully. Use each tool in your own drawings.

  • How to incorporate a few tools at a time.  No overwhelm, you will get a chance to use what you learn.
  • Create dynamic compositions.  Lots of tips on arranging elements on your surface.
  • Enhance depth and perspective. Use size, placement, overlapping, converging lines, detail, and color to draw a landscape from start to finish.
  • Create a drawing in three stages. Follow along with my demos to create at each stage.

I learned a lot of very useful information on how to compose a drawing for a painting or a sketch as well as perspective with converging lines. Donna's short lessons are easily learned and effective. I highly recommend this :-)
I haven't drawn in over a decade. This class helped me start again and focus on what is needed to create a more realistic drawing. The lessons are short and to the point. I really enjoyed this class.
This was a quick, easy, clear, and accessible class which I enjoyed taking. The project went by very fast and the tools in this class are very useful for any artist that draws or paints on a flat surface (or wants to try it!). Donna is a good teacher and has given a lot of valuable info in a short bite sized class. Recommended!

I've been an artist and teacher for over 30 years. Yikes! That's a long time, eh? Well worth every single minute. I love teaching and bringing the joy of creating to those who think they can't. You know who you are, 'can't draw a stick figure' come to mind?

My classes are easy to follow, full of encouragement with a dose of challenge, and based on my many years of teaching drawing, painting, collage, and bookmaking classes. 

I'm a signature member of the National Collage Society and am on the board of the International Society of Experimental Artists.

In my free time I enjoy reading out on my deck, gardening, and learning new things.
