Drawing is the fundamental starting point for the making of art. Whether you are new to art-making or are looking for a class to help solidify these basic skills, it’s never too late or too early to take a drawing class. We will focus on line and mass, organic and geometric shape-making, and the depiction of volume.


Continuing students are always welcome: the structure of this class works for students of all levels. Class curriculum and projects will be slightly different each session, offering new perspectives every time the class is offered.
