Join artist and educator, Jane Lander, in a series of 5 weeks of drawing fundamentals. Each week you'll be given practical exercises that will help you develop your drawing skills. You'll develop drawing tools including the ability to recognise shapes/edges, understanding of proportion, perspective, and develop balanced compositions. These classes will include using a variety of drawing mediums including graphite, pastel and ink. These weekly explorations will not only cover drawing techniques, it will help you develop your own creative style and inspire you with discussion on art, creativity and developing concepts.
These classes are ideal for beginners through to those wishing to refresh their drawing skills.
