WORKING WITH GRAPHITE PENCIL.
If you have long held the desire to learn how to draw then this class is for you. And also, for those who simply wish to take their drawing skills to a higher level.
During this 6-week course, each student will engage in drawing plant specimens as they learn to recognize and create form by understanding the importance of structure, surface texture and light as "value". Feel the magic of creating "value" as your flower drawing slowly emerges and comes to life with shape, form, depth and dimension.
