Want to develop your interest as an artist and looking for a place to start? Whether you want to make artwork that is realistic or abstract, all art shares the same fundamentals.

Beginning with traditional forms of drawing, this 8-week class will start by teaching comparative measurement and drawing from direct observation. Next this class will teach students how to work with photographs and use cameras as a means of augmenting their creativity instead of limiting it.

Finally, this class will teach students how to find inspiration from various sources throughout art history and set students down the path towards understanding composition.
