Seeing Things Differently: The Short Course in Sketching

Due to health concerns, this class has been postponed. Please watch for new date to be determined!

The course is designed for:

  • The person who says, "I’m not an artist; I can’t draw"
  • The practicing artist who knows the value in practicing drawing skills, yet often skips this discipline.
  • Person who have spent most of their lives nurturing others and are now ready to nurture themselves with the art of sketching
  • The curious lifelong learner

This course covers: contour line, basic forms, value shading, gesture, and understanding how to simplify complex subject matter.
