Children's Classes

  • Ages 10 - 14

    Introduction to Drawing is a comprehensive course designed for students new to drawing or those wishing to develop and further refine their drawing skills. Artist Denise Nonomura will focus on the essential elements required for representational drawing and will teach topics such as observation, shape, value, proportion, perspective, composition, light and shadow, shading and texture. Group instruction and individual guidance will be provided as students work through the various fundamental elements to fully rendered drawings.
