Have you ever wanted to draw like a seasoned pro but didn’t know where to start? In this class, each student will learn the basics of drawing with an easy 3-step method that will increase their ability to sketch with ease and confidence. We will explore the wonderful world of pastels and learn all the amazing ways to use them. Each student will walk away with simple tools to make their pictures come to life. Secretly, they will be learning the fundamentals of shape, value, texture and color theory in a fun and easy to follow step by step method. On Tuesday, we will be focusing on the sketch and drawing tools (life long tools they will never forget). On Thursday, each student will color in their sketch learning how to manipulate the pastels into a variety of textures, backgrounds, and life like 3D results. In the 3 week course we will complete a total of 3 pictures. Subjects include land and sea animals, and Disney/Pixar characters. We will meet on Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday for 60 minutes of full instruction. Each child will get individual feedback and encouragement on their picture and what they can do to improve their own skill set as the class progresses.

Required Supplies to be purchased prior to class by parent (approximately $50):
All art supplies are not created equal. The instructor will provide you with a purchase list to with brands and quantities. Pastels are especially important as the cheap ones end up a powdery mess and stick to everything but the paper. The Nupastels are great quality and will last a very long time and are well worth the investment.
