Artists who regularly draw from real life drastically improve overall. We draw in order to see details, light and shadow, and to understand perspective. It trains our eyes in a way that drawing from a picture can’t. 

It’s been said, “If you can draw it, you can paint it.” I believe it! Without this practice, we can begin to rely on photographs or copies. So…whether you do or don’t draw from real life, join us! You will probably surprise yourself.  

There will be a still life set up, large paper, drawing pencils and erasers or bring your own. If you want to take your drawing(s) and add watercolor or paint then bring materials to do this. 

Where: Joan’s Studio: 2003 Pleasant Valley Rd, Pearland TX 77581

What you can expect: Artful Thursdays and Satur-Days of Art are multilevel classes designed to allow anyone to jump in right where you are today in a safe and inspiring class setting. You do NOT have to come with experience. You will be challenged, affirmed and encouraged to get your feet wet, make mistakes and own your personal style and ideas.

We will have a brief opening prayer, instruction on the days assignment, plenty of time to work before and after lunch, time to show any current work(s), share helpful art information or ask a question, and participate in a helpful and supportive critique.

Bring: Your lunch, a journal, paints, pencils, brushes and ideas. 

Cost: $50, cash or check, due before class starts.
