Drawing Fundamentals

Course Description:
Learning how to draw just became easier with step-by-step instruction from our talented drawing instructor! Classes will focus on building basic drawing techniques with practice. Students will deepen their understanding of form through perspective, color, and rapid visualization drawings. Critiques develop students’ abilities to think critically about their own work and maintaining their art journal will allow students to record thoughts, experiment with ideas, media, and practice ideas.

Recommended for ages 14 and older
