What's Included

Elements of Drawing is an introductory studio class with emphasis on learning to see and developing basic drawing skills using various media by employing fundamental design and composition concepts. During the eight weeks of this class we will be covering the basics of drawing which include graphite, charcoal and pen/ink. Students will be exposed to a wide range of drawing strategies and media in an effort to expand their critical analysis of the drawn image. All levels welcome. Lily Cain is a new instructor at The Art Center and a new Adjunct Professor of Art at Colorado Mesa University. An accomplished printmaker, Lily attained her BFA at Sonoma State University under the direction of Kurt Kemp, Mark Perlman and Jane Fisher. After taking some time to build her practice, Lily was accepted into the Printmaking Department of The Royal College of Art in London, England where she received her British Masters under Jo Stockham and Mark Hampson.

About This Organizer

The Art Center is a community arts organization dedicated to improving quality of life by promoting the enjoyment and understanding of the visual arts and related arts through studio art instruction, educational programs for children and adults, exhibitions and the acquisition, care and display of a permanent art collection.


Inspiring educational classes and a commitment to providing access to art for all people have been at the heart of The Art Center's mission since for over 60 years. "Participatory," "experiential," and "artist-driven" are words that describe the variety of programming from traditional to contemporary offered year round. Everyone can take the creative plunge through educational activities that are free and open to the public or provided at low tuition rates thanks to generous donors and sponsors. You can even apply for one of our need-based scholarship. Everyone should be a part of this vibrant creative community, and now there is no reason not to pick up a brush, a dirty piece of charcoal or even throw a bowl on the potter's wheel. Welcome to The Art Center, where creativity is life altering.

There is a class request list if you do not find what you, your child or teen are looking for. The Art Center holds five class sessions every year in painting, drawing, bookmaking, photography, glass and much more. Our programs seek to inspire individuals of all ages to explore, develop and celebrate their creativity.
