An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until September 8, 2020

Grid drawing is one of the best techniques for getting kids to feel confident about drawing! In this 8 week session our advanced students will learn how to draw the human face, learn about proportions and apply their skills about the value scale and shading techniques to reproduce a portrait from a photograph. Drawing takes a lot of practice, patience and students tend to get frustrated easily. The grid system will help students to get proportions and details just right.
