Realistic drawing for kids

This course focuses on observational drawing. Children will draw various props from real life as well as self portraits. They will work in both graphite and charcoal, learning how to shade objects to make them more realistic. At the end of the 8 weeks, your young artist should have more confidence in their ability to draw what they see!

Join us & have fun getting messy!
