  • Please choose this option if you do not have a current NHAC membership. If you are registering a student (grades k thru 12), please consider the $20 yearly student membership-it's the same cost as the $20 non-member fee!

    As an adult signing up for more than one class, it will cost less to add a yearly membership instead of paying the non-member fee for each class!

Ages 14-Adult     

Have you ever told yourself “I can’t draw”? This class was created to dispel that myth! Anyone can learn to draw, with the right tools & the right instruction. Over the course of six sessions, I will teach you the basics of how to use pencils, charcoal, and other dry media to create a drawing from observation. The class will focus primarily on still life, the most approachable subject when learning to draw. You’ll surprise yourself with how far you can come in just a few weeks!  Materials list can be found below.
