How To Draw: The Very Basics

In this class, I will cover the very basic elements of art. Learning to draw can be daunting and downright intimidating. How often do you hear people say they can't even draw a stick figure? This class is a low-key, no pressure approach to the art of drawing as well as how artists "see" in the first place. We will go through each element individually, put them into practice, and then combine the elements at the end to produce a simple 3-dimensional composition. 

While this class will have one main project, there will also be several mini exercises, which will be both relevant and fun.

This class will be a precursor to more advanced drawing classes, such as an Animal Portrait drawing class. I felt it prudent to cover the basic elements of art first since the latter courses will all build upon the basics.

I'm not sure if this is where we're supposed to put the link to our outlines, but here it is...
