Drawing

Drawing lessons begin with quick sketch. 5, 10 & 15 minute sketches enable the student to think quickly and focus on simple shapes, long lines and construction.  Once the creative mind adapts to this process, the rendering of form can then be applied.

Kids Corner

As early as the artist can hold a pencil they can start learning how to construct the simple shapes. Now they can draw anything they choose using these shapes. Stick figures, animals, scenery and much more.  A time to let their imagination run wild!
