Join us in our Bridgeland art studio every Wednesday evening and learn the fundamentals of drawing. In this six week course, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of drawing and develop their skills through a series of projects focusing on line, tonal value, mark making, texture, and negative and positive space. Many of these projects will utilize drawing from life in order to help sharpen observational skills.
