Class Description

Learn the building blocks of landscape composition, tonal value (shading), and perspective. 
Each week you’ll learn parts of the Landscape composition: trees & flowers, rocks, hills & mountains, and water features. 
Basic pencil & shading skills are helpful but not necessary. 

You’ll have the freedom in this class to draw and to release yourself from being frozen by perfection. Drawing is a skill anyone can get better at. Great artists only got that way by practice.

This class can offer you a vehicle for a better imagination, better hand-eye coordination, and better observation skills.

Come join us & have fun learning to draw.

Each class will end with a short set-by-step exercise for a complete image that will leave you feeling proud & satisfied with your process.
