Drawing a wide array of objects from the Desert Museum’s extensive natural history collection can be a one of a kind, fun and inspiring experience. This class is a perfect opportunity to hone your hand-to-eye coordination to draw what you see not what you think you see. As you gain increased skills to draw with correct proportion and shape, you will also refine the expression of light on form to render deeper space. Practice skills necessary to draw varied textures by learning mark-making and blending techniques. You will explore the possibilities of graphite pencil, loosen up and gain fluidity. All of these lessons will help you to creatively express yourself while you fine-tune the quality of your drawings.
