Sketchbook: Yes, You Can Draw: Julie Fei Fan Balzer

Everyone can draw. In this class we're going to leave behind the fear associated with drawing photo-realistically and embrace our own funky interpretations of the world around us. Keeping a sketchbook is a wonderful way to record your life, your travels, and the objects around you. Milton Glaser once said that you never really see something until you draw it. I agree! This class offers a laid back approach to launching your sketchbook practice!    

Students Should Bring:

  • sketchbook -- I prefer a watercolor book, but anything will do
  • mechanical pencil
  • large eraser
  • watercolor paints
  • bristle brushes (small and medium round brushes are best)
  • waterproof black pen -- I like the Sakura Pigma Micron or Faber Castell Pitt Pens
  • spray bottle of water
  • jar or container for water
  • a few objects from nature: shells, leaves, flowers, sticks, stones, etc.
  • optional: rag or paper towel, apron, heat gun and extension cord

Cost: $ 120.00
