Drawing for Adults: Flowers and Leaves in Graphite

Sunday August 20, 2017: 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room

This event is intended for grade 9 through adult

Come draw with us! We'll provide everything you need to practice your drawing skills. In this session you'll draw flowers and leaves using drawing pencils.

Every other week we’ll cover a different topic. You’ll learn different techniques to tackle texture, chiaroscuro, and perspective, plus improve your sense of composition, lighting, and form. You'll get the chance to try out different mediums like pencil, charcoal, and pastel. All skill levels are welcome to participate.
