Learn the basics of drawing and how it can make you a better painter! In this class, we will explore free hand and perspective drawing made easy. We will go over shading and how to add color to enhance your drawing. Explore drawing from Nature, Still Life and Landscape using set-ups, the outdoors, or supplied reference. This class is especially for beginners to learn in a nurturing environment and teen homeschoolers are welcome.
