Workshop consist of 4 sessions

The classes will begin with instructions on basic drawing, shapes, a little on perspective, techniques, shading and highlighting.  We will begin with pencil, the most versatile of drawing media, good for precision and control. We will discuss and work with different mediums as the workshop progresses.  Your workshop fee of $70.00 includes all materials: sketch book, various pencils, charcoal and erasers to keep.  Other tools and materials will be provided for use during classes.  For those who wish to continue developing their skills at the conclusion of the four session workshop, information will be given on drawing tools, materials, their uses, and where to purchase them.  Your instructor is Kaye Lee Brady of Utah, more recently of Pantego, N.C.
