Fundamentals of Drawing with Matthew Sarmiento

For beginners, grid drawing is a fundamental way to train the eye to see proportions and spatial relationships, developing the skill towards ultimately drawing from direct observation. Early students will also learn the basics on how to shade with color pencils to create volume and depth in a drawing. The class will be an hour long and geared more to beginners ages 7-12, but parents are welcome to sit with and assist their younger children. Participants will take home a sketch pad. *while supplies last.
