Drawing from Life with Erin

I am a current art student at Washington University in St. Louis, and the biggest lesson I have learned for improving my art is learning how to see. The brain simplifies lines and angles, and it’s easy to think you see something when in reality it is more complex than the original observation. My goal is to teach the class how to see lines and angles, to notice subtleties that make drawing the object easier. This may sound difficult and scary, but I have learned from some amazing professors and can make this process easier. If you are interesting in improving your drawing skills and want to learn some tips and tricks, this is the class for you!

Calligraphy with Shelby

The cost of the class is $30. I will be providing Micron pens (my favorites!!!) and practice sheets for you. You can bring anything else you'd like! If you want to decorate a chalkboard, bring one in, along with some Chalk Ink or Bistro markers (Chalk Ink are my favorites here)! If there's something else you'd like to work on (a journal, anything else you have in mind), bring it along with you. Also if you have gel pens or other writing supplies you'd like to bring, bring them on! :) I'll be providing instruction and individual assistance, and we'll have so much fun learning together!
