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 developing basic drawing skills from direct observation and lighted still life arrangements. Students will deepen their understanding of form through perspective, color, and and shading techniques. 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


classes will be held once a week on Thursday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the art room of the Springfield Township Allen Paul Community Room, next to the fire station at 9150 Winton Road.  

Each session lasts for six weeks allowing basic skills to build over time. This program is ideal for beginners, as well as more advanced students. Students are asked to bring their own supplies.
