Every artist starts with making one mark. Good artists are the ones who keep making marks, over and over! In this class my goal is to get you to keep making art by making it fun!What better place to begin than with drawing essentials? In this class, I’ve created science-based exercises that will help you become a better artist. Drawing is the foundation for so many things in the visual arts—lettering, portraiture, character design, surface patterns, illustration, graphic design—being able to draw is essential to all of them. By the end of this class, you’ll know how to get better at making the marks you draw on paper match the vision in your mind! Together, we’ll set up and draw a still life to practice everything we’ve learned. This is a perfect beginner class for artists of all ages or a refresher class for more experienced artists who want some structure for their art practice. You'll need:
  • Your brain! 😀
  • Starter pencil set or equivalent with different pencil grades
  • An eraser that you like
  • Paper
