Basic Drawing 1W24

You can register for this class starting November 15. 

We’ll be covering the basics you need to begin your drawing journey! We’ll be talking about drawing from shapes, sketching places and figures, basic perspective, light and shadow, and more! Be prepared to explore visual concepts.

*NO CLASS ON 1/15 (MLK Jr. Day) & 2/19 (President's Day)


I took this class because I wanted to draw again and hopefully progress to watercolors.  By far, what I enjoyed the most about this class was the teacher--Eli is an excellent instructor!  I feel confident, having taken this class, to take a more advanced drawing class and eventually move on to watercolors.
