The Practical & Entertaining Art of Drawing
with Ed Buonvecchio

Mondays, September 5 – October 10, 2022 | 9:00 am – 11:00 am (Arizona Time)

Drawing can be a useful and fun tool in your daily life taking you away from your stressful day and giving you a way to express ideas or memorialize experiences. Learning to draw can give you the skill to design something you want to make, begin a painting or serve as a launchpad to exploring other forms of art or teaching others your learned drawing skills. In this six-week ongoing studio class we will learn skills and tools needed to draw what you think and see. We will practice the use of pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, brush and paper surfaces. We will learn about perspective, value, line, shape and composition. At the end of each class we will complete a drawing or drawings based on the lessons of the day.
