Frog drawing by Janice Liu

Rooster drawing by Janice Liu

Teens will learn the principles of drawing animals in this class. By studying the unique anatomy and properties of animals, students will arrive at a better understanding of how to depict different types of animals. The focus will be on practicing how to construct animal bodies and capture realistic proportions by studying photo references.

We’ll use a variety of mediums, like watercolours, pastels, and inks, to break out of pencil drawing.

Beginners and intermediate artists are all welcome! All supplies are included.
