It’s always a good time to go back to the basics! That’s why in this class we will be focusing on practicing a handful of fundamental drawing techniques and discussing how they can help us create dimension, shadow, and texture in our work. This class is more focused on the process of creating rather than a single finished piece, which leaves us free to practice and explore in a casual low-pressure head space! We will also work on the consistency and confidence of our pen strokes and learn a few strategies for identifying highlights and shadows in reference photos. My goal is for everyone to leave this class feeling more relaxed about their ‘making’ process and more confident in their ability to employ the fundamentals during that process.

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!


  • Paper
  • Pencil / Eraser
  • Pens: You will need at least one but I encourage you to bring an assortment that you can experiment with. Microns are my favorite!
  • Optional: Ruler or Straightedge
