Learning to draw is about learning how to see — how to see things differently from our normal everyday seeing. You don’t need to have talent to draw. With proper instruction, the perceptual skills of drawing can be taught to anyone. Join us as we learn to see and draw lines, shapes, lights and shadows, as well as create perspective and proportion in new ways. You will come away with a clear experience of the distinction known to many as “right brain drawing.”
