Discover the building blocks of drawing and improve your style: Take lessons from a talented artist.
During our lesson we will learn the basics of drawing and key terms so that you will be able to create a successful drawing. One of the key terms that we will and a very important term used in many forms of art is Value. Once we learn about value we will complete a few exercises to better understand how to use value. Once we have learned about values we will then learn about highlights and shadows and how these are a very important to creating a successful drawing. After completing these exercises we will then use all the techniques we have learned to create a drawing. This class is recommended to take before any other lessons. Materials needed: Sketch pad, eraser, drawing pencils or a No. 2 pencil and blenders or Q-tips
About Elexus D.

I am an artist, instructor, painter and drawer. While studying for my Bachelor in Fine Arts I completed a summer internship where I had four permanent pieces installed in a showroom, these pieces were stain glass and tile mosaics. Since getting my bachelor's I worked at a studio part- time for 2 1/2 years along with teaching private art lessons to children. Over the course of working at the studio I was an instructor and taught many different classes and age groups. Some of my favorite classes to teach where my drawing and painting classes. During these classes I would teach many different mediums including watercolor, pencil drawings, pour paints and pastels. By the time you complete a session with me I hope to give you all the tools you will need to complete a successful piece in any medium or art form you would like.
