Having you been waiting for an art journey? A class that is full of surprises and is “new” every week? Drawing Adventures takes you on a developmental drawing journey every Monday. This class is all about exploring and practicing new drawing techniques, strategies and subjects with different drawing challenges each week.  In this 4-week repeating class the projects each week will emphasize how to “see” like an artist and practicing techniques. The sessions will differ quarter to quarter!


It is perfect for the beginner or anyone who likes a new drawing challenge and fresh instruction each week. If you have completed Julia’s Joy of Drawing and the Joy of Drawing continues and want to keep on drawing, this is the companion class for you!

Our materials will focus on dry media like pencils, charcoal, pastels, with some ink and colored pencils being explored as the class progresses.
