Everyone can draw. You can draw. Be prepared to surprise yourself. This online course is designed for beginners and/or students with little or no drawing experience. The course will focus exclusively on the line and its connection to the body, sight and the mind. Through “the line,” students will be guided through didactic and challenging exercises exploring eye-hand coordination, gesture, space and composition. The course will focus on each student’s personal development, with the
sole purpose of enriching their own creative explorations and confidence.
