I Love Drawing
Make new friends and improve your drawing skills! Each class includes a lesson and drawing exercise, followed by time to work independently. Additional instruction is provided to those who want it. All levels of artist are welcome, only a love of drawing is required! We will study a new subject each month. Courses will cover such topics as animals, favorite characters, and faces. I encourage students to suggest subjects and styles they are interested in learning for future courses. Students will receive a sketchbook and sketching kit. A material fee of $15, payable to the instructor, is due to instructor at the first class. Sign up for multiple classes for a reduced material fee of $8 after the first month.

Introduction to Calligraphy

Students take home their calligraphy pen, nibs, ink, and practice book after the last class so you can continue to make beautiful letters at home!
