Learn to draw what you see outside.

This workshop will emphasize on how to start and finish drawing things in front of us.  Learning to draw from things that you see, not from a photograph or from your imagination, is important to your overall drawing vocabulary.  The focus of this one day workshop with be on how to use composition and space to draw from your observation.  You will use classic drawing materials in this class.  All supplies included in tuition.  Please bring a sack lunch.
