Essential Drawing Course for Beginners

Every Tuesday, Join anytime
6:30pm – 8:00pm Pacific Time

You will learn the most important aspects of drawing from the very beginning. You will build the foundation for rendering basic objects and environments, and become ready to practice these techniques with more complex subjects in future drawings. All the techniques of the Essential Drawing Course are done in monochrome (black and white) so you can keep your focus on structure, tonality, shading, form, and texture.

The Art of Ideas: How To Use a Sketchbook
6-Week Drawing Course

Wednesdays, January 5th – February 9th
6:30pm – 8:00pm Pacific Time

When you get your first sketchbook, you become a hunter for ideas. “Pray comes to the hunter”, says Olya, definitely meaning the sketchbook. When you have a sketchbook, you start getting a lot of ideas. You never know when your best idea will strike you, so you want to carry your sketchbook everywhere. Everything suddenly becomes worth your attention, and you begin to fill it with random drawings – some of which may turn out to be your body of work in the future!

A sketchbook is a fundamental tool for artists – it’s a must-have for any creative. In this course, you’ll learn how to use it effectively to lay the foundation for all of your future work.

Charcoal is a true learning medium, perfect for those new to art because it’s the best tool for students. Students in the old academy would draw endlessly with charcoal. It is a forgiving and versatile medium – the ease of erasing and blending makes it a joy to work it. In the end, it gives you a remarkably realistic appearance when a charcoal drawing is taken to completion. 

If you’ve tried charcoal and found it messy – this course will show you how to control it. In each class, the instructor will lead you through demonstrations that cover 6 independent charcoal drawing techniques, such as blending, creating texture, using the eraser as a drawing tool, drawing on paper versus canvas, and more.
