Very Beginner Drawing Workshop – ONLINE

Very Beginner Drawing Workshop – ONLINE

Class Description:
This class is delivered online with limited seats for a highly interactive experience with your instructor.

Never drawn before or want to refresher on the basics before jumping into a Drawing class? This one is for you!

We will introduce you to the common drawing supplies such as viewfinders, different types of pencils, graphite sticks, and charcoal.  Discover the fun of Lyra graphite sticks and drawing with an eraser.

These 3 hours are packed with exercises that will introduce you to “learning to see” in a different way: including contour drawing, upside down drawing, using a viewfinder and negative space.

This workshop is great for those with little or no experience drawing and who want to prepare for the other Drawing classes and workshops we offer.

“I had a fun time and it was a relaxing atmosphere to help create a great learning experience. I encourage anyone who are beginners in drawing to give it a try.” – Edgar Poe
