ORGANIC DRAWING CLASS

MIXED MEDIUM DRAWING CLASS

 

ORGANIC SKETCHING for both beginners and advanced artists, is a fun, relaxing, natural, and pleasing way to express our concepts, ideas, and dreams into their first visual stages. It’s a combination of learned simple skills, observation, employing creative techniques, and endless practice.

 

Sketching is the very first step in almost every genre of art, be it drawing, painting, sculpting, architecture, or design. Learn to avoid unreliable skills and frustrating habits which can make sketching a fearful hurdle! Organic Sketching is a natural and effective confidence builder guaranteed to help make first sketches exciting, more accurate, and something to look forward to. Sketching should be a pleasure! Later in the course you'll learn how to change some of your sketches into final drawing pieces. Bring a sense of humor & an open mind! This won’t be like any art class you’ve ever had!

Once you've conquored the techniques of sketching, you'll move onto drawing.

TUESDAYS 5:30- 7:00 pm

Ages 9- 12 yrs.

Monthly Tuition $127

 

Drawing from our imagination is how we all start our artistic journey. In this hour and a half class, we will be exploring cartooning and illustration from telling a story with stick figures to illustrating content such as children’s books, comics, and even some animation. Students will learn the value of creative thinking and imagination while learning the skills they need to master using art to get their

ideas from the mind to the page.

 

Using pencil, pen, and color, students will demonstrate skills such as the principles of design, storytelling through art, and character and background design. Lessons on how to effectively use reference images and set up successful and expressive compositions will take place in each class, while leaving time for students to work one-on-one with the teacher on projects. Creating art from your imagination can be difficult, without the drawing skills and the guided creativity you'll receive in this class!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do the classes last?

All of our classes are ongoing year-round with no end date.  

Is there a contract when you join a class?

Nope, all classes are paid monthly and you can cancel anytime. But please note, a $40 registration fee will be charged when you first sign up or if you decide to take a break from classes, you will be charged the registration fee when you register again. If you simply decide to change the class you're in, you will not be charged a registration fee.

What if I miss a class, do I still have to pay?

Because our teachers are here ready to teach you, yes, you will be charged monthly for the entire month as long as you are enrolled in a class. We do our best to help each student understand what they missed so they can continue where they left off. If you decide to drop from a class, you would need to let us know before the 25th of the month so you aren't charged for tuition for the upcoming month.
