DRAWING FROM LIFE
Drawing from life means drawing from actual objects or subjects that you can see, touch and smell. We will cover the basics of all drawing like line, shape, value, texture and perspective. We will cover everything from quick stretches to detailed drawings. This is a great class for the beginner as well as a refresher for the more experienced drawer.
BEGINNERS ANIMAL PORTRAITS in Coloured Pencil
After covering watercolour, drawing and acrylic animal portraits in this class we’ll be using colored pencil as our medium. This class will be great for either a beginner or a more experienced student. We will be working with specific lesson plans and because this medium takes a while to complete, we may only end up with only a few finished pictures. With this medium, you can achieve a more realistic result and image which I think students may appreciate.
