    Learn the basics of drawing complicated things with emphasis on storytelling. Students will learn to draw hands, feet, and eyes, people, setting, and machinery, all while learning to tell a story with their art. This is a 4-week class; each week will focus on a different type of "hard stuff" to draw. Each week a new instructional video will be posted by our instructor. Once weekly the instructor will also conduct a live session for all students to ask questions and get feedback on their work.
