Like a house, a good piece of art needs a solid foundation.  Before you can begin to create you need to get your ideas and impressions down on paper and drawing is the underlying basis for all your visually creative endeavors.  The ability to see objects, persons, whatever surrounds you in a clear and unfiltered way is not only challenging but exhilarating at the same time!  This class will walk you through the necessary steps needed to help you develop your basic abilities (along with practice) to render a subject skillfully and with a growing understanding of space in order to translate your “three dimensional” world onto a two-dimensional surface.
