Drawing Fundamentals

 (5 weeks)
with Anissa Boutwell

 

Join Anissa for this new daytime drawing class for beginning students and continuing students. The foundation of all art begins with the confidence to pick up a pencil, but sometimes it's hard to know where to start or how to fine tune your drawing. Anissa will help give you the confidence to make decisive marks on your paper and most importantly to enjoy making art. Too often we become distracted with the pressure of a final product and this class is intended to break through your fears or worries and focus on the journey towards a final piece! Class will be begin with group drawing exercises and then focus on each individual's interests projects. Students are invited to bring in images or objects to use as reference in their work.
