    How to Draw the Hard Stuff (4th-6th Grades)

    Every artist knows it -there are some things that just take longer to learn how to draw. In this class, students will learn the basics of drawing complicated things, using storytelling as a vehicle for exploration. Students will learn to draw some of the most common hard-to-draw stuff: hands, feet, and eyes; people, setting, and machinery; all while learning to tell a story with their art.

    Basic supplies will be available for use on site, but a suggested supply list will be provided to students so they may purchase their own supplies to be able to practice at home.


    Class has been postponed.  Please check back for new dates.
