DARE TO DRAW with Tracy Bruton

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw, to lose yourself in the magic that happens with a piece of paper and a drawing tool? Well, you CAN. Everyone can! In this class I will teach you how to see like an artist sees. If you can “SEE” it, you can draw it. Imagine being able to convincingly render anything that is placed in front of you. The class will be taught in bite sided increments to guarantee success. You will be amazed by your progression. We will begin with Graphite but will eventually expand to charcoal, oil pastel, pen and ink, and more.

All of your supplies will be provided. 

You can contact me at

We meet in my home on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30.

The cost is $30 per class
