Course Content

To teach drawing is to encourage you to see it as a creative process. Therefore, the thought and commitment you put into your drawings, and the enjoyment you derive from doing them, is more important than the finished work. You on the other hand, will most likely want to draw a photo realistic likeness of any subject matter the first time out. If you could already do that.... why would you be here? Just as we learn to read and write, drawing skills are acquired and developed by doing. This doesn t require genius or even innate talent and does not require fancy tools, but rather, requires time, patience and the willingness to practice, make mistakes and persevere.
