What you'll learn in this beginner drawing class:

Drawing is where it all begins!

This course is ideal for beginner and intermediate-level students who seek a foundation in the fundamentals of drawing. Expert teachers guide students through the elements of art, including line, shape, shadow, value, tone, form and perspective, demonstrating and offering critiques of work in graphite, charcoal and more. Working from direct observation, you'll learn to draw what you see, beginning with still lifes and progressing to portrait and figure drawing with a live model.

Rachel was an amazing instructor! The class gave me exposure to a broad range of techniques and exercises I could use to improve my drawing. To boot, the environment was incredibly positive and made me feel unafraid to fail.
