About this event

Intro to Drawing: Landscapes in Season Adults & Teens, 16+

Saturdays, 10:00 am - 11:30am EST
4 weeks, February 27 - March 20
In this beginning/intermediate drawing class, participants will develop their use of the elements of art through several design principles in landscapes. We will experiment with different drawing materials and blending tools during the course. We will explore several drawing techniques, including overlapping, perspective, and shading with values. Each artist is encouraged to work from references that inspire self and celebrate their own unique drawing style.

Previous drawing experience is welcomed, but not required for this course. Students will be responsible for purchasing their own supplies.
