Jenny Lemons Workshops

Online Workshop 10/8: Drawing for Beginners - Learn to Sketch What You See

Explore the fundamentals of drawing in this fun workshop. We will learn how to use a set of drawing pencils, each with a different graphite weight, to create beautifully shaded and blending drawings. We will practice shading and sketching with several drawing exercises to get comfortable with our materials. Once everyone is ready, we will practice drawing from a digital still life. By the end of class, everyone will create several graphite drawings and have the confidence to create more!
