DRAWING CLASSES

Learn to draw or learn to draw better!

You don’t have to be experienced to take these classes! I teach all levels of experience – from absolute beginners to more advanced students looking to refine their talents! Patience and enthusiasm will help build your confidence as you work on honing your abilities and techniques!

These drawing classes meet for eight 90 minute sessions. Classes are centered around the act of drawing.  Particular attention will be paid around the basics of seeing and drawing (proportions, shape, lines, values, etc), and over time, my students use the lessons learned to build their own confidence and abilities. It is my desire, after eight weeks of classes, to give the student the tools they need to continue to draw on their own.

Classes run for eight weeks.These art classes are located in a quiet and safe corner of the historic northeast just blocks from the Kansas City Museum. My studio has off street parking and full climate control! Here’s a handy map and directions with a pretty and easy route to my studio. There are plenty of flexible class times that will fit with your busy schedule!

Over the course of eight weeks of classes, I will help each student develop drawing abilities by reinforcing techniques, concepts and processes of drawing while teaching them new ways to actually see what they are drawing. I believe in practice and learning through doing. I have over 15 years of teaching experience.

I have a very basic list of materials that can be picked up at any art or hobby store upon request. Class schedules are fairly flexible, with advance notice, classes can be rescheduled during the week or in case of vacations or other issues, a week can be skipped without losing your classtime.  I just ask that you not abuse this and notify me as early as possible if you won’t be able to attend an art lesson.

Class Schedule:

Class times are available on a rolling basis, but times do fill up fast at the end of summer, so if you’d like to reserve a specific spot, the earlier is better.
