Want to draw but convinced only gifted people can create? In these lessons we want to show you that everyone can draw! Drawing always starts with learning to ‘see’ like an artist. Then it’s all about learning to enjoy the practice!
In these introductory drawing classes you will be introduced to line, shape, tone and colour using simple drawing materials. You will see examples by master artists and gain insight into what they were trying to achieve in their own work. You will be introduced to different ways to start an artwork, what to focus on and how to feel successful with our achievements. Discover the joy of creating and seeing the world like an artist.
No skills required, just enthusiasm and a love for creativity.
