Beginner Art Series: Introduction to Drawing

 If you would love to draw but just never learned how, this is the class for you.  Caroline Mustard  will take you in easy steps through the basics that are so often “assumed”, yet which are critical to acquiring the skill to draw:
• How to hold a pencil - sounds silly, but yet it is critically important.
• Taking a line for a walk - Caroline follows the basic drawing exercises created by famed art teacher and artist Paul Klee who noted: “Drawing is simply a dot going for a walk.”
• Textures and patterns - how to use your pencil (or pen) to create different textures and patterns. This is NOT drawing for dummies. It is a class that enables you to SEE and to draw what you SEE instead of what you think you see.  
If you have ever wanted to draw and felt you lacked the skill or training, take this class and enter into a new world of being able to see things around you...  12 week class.

Additional Information

MEET-UP VENUE: We will meet at 9.30am at the SHORELINE BOATHOUSE CAFE.
DIRECTIONS:  I have attached a map. If coming from North you turn south on Shoreline Blvd and drive as far as it will take  you until you see the gate (no entry fee required).  Drive in and around the golf course until you reach the end which will be a parking lot.  The Boathouse is right there and the cafe is beside it where we can get a warm drink and meet up before we go for a short hike around the lake.
MATERIALS: Please bring a small sketchbook and pencils (HC and 2B or higher if you can) with a pencil sharpener and an eraser.  We will have lots of pencils but we have lots of students coming, so would prefer you bring you own.  You can also bring a fine tip black pen if you would like.  
We will have materials there for you to try out.  We will also have instructional materials for you.
