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." Contact Tracy by email here
"We meet in my home for lessons. I also have classes for children."
The cost is $30 per class."

Just to give you a few ideas I will have reference photos and help with the first steps to capture the painting you are seeking. We will work on shadows and highlights along with letting the colors and water flow throughout the piece. Timing is everything with watercolor so you’ll learn to slow down and trust the process. I will be providing paper if needed. Bring your own supplies and if you need to purchase some, we are also an art supply store so you’re in the right place. Link to register
