Down to Earth Drawing Basics

Down to Earth Drawing Basics

Down to Earth Drawing Basics

Learn how to draw? Yes! Develop the ability to translate what you see onto paper in a realistic manner, using a range of approaches. Practice with an assortment of natural forms as you discover a wide variety of tools and techniques. This class is open to all levels from beginners to advanced. Individual attention will be emphasized as we cover simple steps to get you started. Many see drawing as a life-long endeavor to improve skills or maybe you just need a refresher to “return” to the skills you let sit over time. Sessions will comprise lectures, demonstrations, and studio exercises. Each session will focus on a different technique and subject. Learn how to approach this traditional media creatively and tune into the process of observation and drawing from life!
