LEARN TO DRAW IN SIX HOURS! If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. However, this one-day workshop from a life-long drawer (as in artist, not furniture*) will give you everything you need to know to start you in the right direction. This crash course on the foundations of drawing will include demonstrations, sketching exercises with various materials, step-by-step instructions, and hand-out sheets. You, the student, will learn about the elements and principles of design and what constitutes a good composition in a fun and deceptively relaxed setting. And…you will actually take home a finished drawing! Too good to be true? The answer depends on you, and how you apply that knowledge afterwards.   Learn More
