Class Overview

Just 20-30 minutes of drawing a day not only helps build your skills, but it also is a meditative, calming experience that can free your mind and open you up to new ideas. Join artist Patricia Watwood and start a daily drawing practice; all you need is a sketchbook and pencil. Learn observational techniques for conveying proportion, form and dimension. With each day's practice, you'll gain confidence, patience and peace as you discover the joys of drawing.
