    This was the most amazing experience! I’ve been looking for an art class for years and never found one that “fit” until now! Although I have been drawing for several years, I’ve never taken a drawing class. This class starts at the most fundamental level, which is what I’d been hoping to find. The instructor is also amazing and it was so cool to see what other students are creating! The ambiance in the classroom was also perfect for creativity!

    This class was not what I was expecting because I thought we were going to be learning to use graphite sticks. To my surprise, all materials were provided, and it was actually a very basic beginners class in graphite pencil drawing that taught me some very valuable skills and history. I have been drawing my whole life and have taken many art classes, but these techniques were still new to me and very useful in improving my drawing skills. It went by fast, but I had a wonderful time.

    I loved my afternoon exploring "Drawing with Graphite". Great teacher, great information, great environment. They were kind, helpful, and reached out to check in on me when I was running late which I really appreciated. I look forward to returning for more - art classes and other classes! Thanks!
