FOR THE BEGINNER:This class is designed with the beginner adult in mind!  We will introduce our beginner students to the basics of drawing with observational drawing  lessons as well as shading lessons.  We will also introduce our students  to the use of  graphite and charcoal media before they learn about color theory painting!  Students are guided through the fundamentals of drawing to help them build their confidence in their art making skills and to make them better prepared for their painting lessons!  Students’ first 4 week session usually includes more drawing lessons than the painting lessons!  We believe drawing is the  foundation to all art forms!

FOR THE ADVANCED: This class offers continuous learning opportunities to  our students as the  students advance their skills from session to session!  Drawing and painting lessons are included throughout these sessions.
