Pick of the Month!

Learn something new this year!  Heather Ross’s philosophy is that everything begins with a simple idea and a sketch – and with enough practice, anyone can draw. In this three-part course, you will begin by learning how to draw everyday objects with pencil and paper, and then throughout the course you’ll learn how to render and add color to more complex shapes. By the end of the course, you’ll be drawing multi-faceted illustrations and learning how to think (and create) like an illustrator.
