This crash course is great if you have always wanted to learn how to draw: whether your last art class was in high school, or if you just want to refresh or add to your drawing skills and knowledge. What better way to get those creative juices flowing than with a glass of vino/kombucha/juice in hand!

Join me in this fun, hands-on, drawing class. Start off with a few warm-up sketches, followed by exercises introducing some of the essential drawing techniques. The second part is about putting what you’ve learned into practice, where you’ll work on your own piece(s), at your own pace. This allows for the opportunity to ask one-on-one feedback or other questions you might have when you get stuck with the drawing process. We’ll be working with a still life for this first part of the class, but you can bring an image of your own inspiration for the second part.

What will be covered:
- Basics: Talking pencils - 2H, HB, 2B, 6B – why (and how to use them), erasers and paper.
- Different approaches on how to set up your sketch/drawing; as this is maybe the hardest part of the drawing process.
- Proportion: looking into different techniques that will help you to put everything in proportion.
- Phases of a drawing: how to go from sketch to a finished drawing
- Shading and texture: to make sure your drawing looks realistic
