Realistic Drawing is now online.  This class will provide children a studio experience from their own home. All lessons will be led by our Teaching Artist Aarti Mantri and allow your child to socialize with other students in the class. You must have internet on a device with a built in camera to participate. If you have always wanted to create realistic drawings, you will want to take this class. We will explore a variety of drawing techniques to help you become independent at drawing realistic art. Working in black and white and color, we will explore contour drawings, observational drawing, value and shading, and proportions. In this session, we will focus on still-life and perspective drawing in particular.
