In this class you will learn how to “see” the subject you’re wanting to draw. You will learn how to look at the subject noting characteristics such as shape, texture, shadows. You will then apply these new skills putting pencil to paper training your brain to translate what you see to a drawing.

You will take home some preliminary sketches demonstrating the concepts you have learned and you can practise.

This class is for anyone who wants to learn the basic insights of how to draw. The ability to see objects in a different light means you will better appreciate art.

If you are an absolute beginner this is a great way to dip your toe in so to speak and learn a new skill. If you then decide you’d like to learn more, the class is a good introduction to the five week “Fabulous Fundamentals of Drawing” course (information coming soon).

The class will be taught by Humble House artist, Valentyna Crane.
