Drawing is a skill anyone can learn!

 We meet outdoors at the beautiful Elk Grove Regional Park.  In each of our drawing classes, students will be taught how to observe the subject and use light and shadows to see the basic shapes. Learning to draw is an essential foundation to all artistic endeavors. Teaching students how to use their skills of observation to see the lines, values and shapes will build confidence in their other artistic pursuits.
