All ages from teens to older adults are accepted. Instructor specializes in teaching to the needs of older adults. This class is designed to prepare students for the painting class offered on the following day. It is not mandatory to take drawing first but is recommended.

Accurate measuring techniques from real life and photographs.
Understanding negative space.
Understanding light effects.

TWO CLASS SECTIONS OF SIX AND FIVE CLASSES RESPECTIVELY ARE OFFERED.
Students may progress to the painting class after the first six week session if they desire or may remain for the second six week session if they choose to sharpen their skill level. Students are welcome to take both the drawing and painting classes together. However taking the drawing class first if you have no drawing experience is recommended.
Due to constraints on availability of space, the sections/classes have been scheduled as listed.
