New drawing classes at the Marshall J. Gardner Center in Miller!

Pass the word!

I am so pleased to be partnering with South Shore Arts and the Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts in Miller, IN, to offer drawing classes for kids (8-10 years old) and adults (15 and up) this Spring!

The class for beginning drawing students dispels the myth that drawing ability is something that certain people are born with, while others are not. Learning to draw essentially means learning to see, these skills absolutely can be taught to anyone with a desire to learn. Designed to build a foundation for beginning students, this class uses various drawing exercises and projects that focus on the fundamentals of drawing, including line, shape, value and form. Students will gain confidence and grow in their drawing skills, using black and white mediums such as pencil, pen & ink, and charcoal. All supplies are included.

The intermediate class will take your drawing to the next level! This class builds upon the skills learned in the beginning drawing class, and continues to develop the concepts introduced in those sessions, adding an understanding of design and composition to create drawings with interest and depth. New techniques and mediums will be introduced, along with weekly sketchbook assignments. (Students should bring their own sketchbooks.)

The first  five-week beginning drawing sessions begin on Wednesday March 27, and the intermediate sessions follow immediately after, on Wednesday April 27.
