Drawing for Beginners
Explore the fundamentals of drawing with Jennie Lennick, a formally trained painter and founder of Jenny Lemons, a DIY art school and small-batch clothing company based in San Francisco. Your group will learn how to use a set of drawing pencils, each with a different graphite weight, to create beautifully shaded and blended drawings. Jennie will lead you through shading and sketching exercises to get you comfortable with the materials. Once everyone is ready, you will practice drawing from a digital still life. Gather your own supplies or get sketching kits shipped to participants.
