Learn to draw and paint right from the start! Students will be introduced to the basic process of making pictures that not only “look like what you see” but are fresh and expressive. Students will learn to work with light and shadow, color, and simple perspective. 

ArtsConnect offers an online option for those not ready to do in-person classes yet.  We will have a camera set up during class so students can join the class from their homes. Participants will need to download the free program- Zoom prior to the beginning of the session.  The instructor will email students an invitation link each week. Supplies for the class will be available for pick up the week before the sessions begin.
