What you are going to learn

A few more words about this course

This is course is very exciting.  After learning the Foundations of Drawing, your ability to draw from life will take a giant leap forward. After this course you will find yourself drawing constantly in delight.  

In this course, we will delight in simple everyday items from your kitchen.  Celebrating the homemade life as we draw tomatoes, oatmeal containers, cracker boxes and teapots. Each of these objects, simple in geometric form, will be a great jumping off point to start drawing still life.
