Helen Shafer Garcia
6:30 - 9:30
Thursday Eve

[back to quicklinks]
$ 85  

All levels
Drawing is seeing without knowing. We have all of these symbols stuck in our heads for shapes but it’s not what we see in front of us. Break away from that brain stuff and learn how to see in a new way- a mindful, observational way. Connect the lines with confidence and leave those doubts behind! We’ll play with pens, pencils and color pencils that will be used to draw funky small objects that I’ll bring to class. Learn all about those art -speak terms like values, color theory, intensity, contour, and negative space. Now is the time to reach out for that pencil and draw the lines!

Supply list needed to bring to class:
9” x 12” mixed media journal
#2b and a4B pencil
small white plastic eraser

5.00 supply fee payable to instructor at beginning of class includes
pens and the use of color pencils

I will provide visual aids and other tools to use while we work.
