Whether you are taking the first step to becoming a drawer or been drawing for years, this course offers a chance to explore different drawing mediums in a nurturing safe environment. Each week different media will be explored from simple graphite pencils, pencil crayons, markers to India ink with nibs, oil and chalk pastel to  more unconventional items like coffee grounds, tea bags and graphite powder. All that is needed is a sketchbook, some loose paper  and drawing tools  from around your house.  Lauren will provide interesting forays into using wet mediums, printmaking methods and collage to enhance your images.  Drawings will come from direct observation as well as your imagination.  Subject matter will include; still life, botanical, architectural renderings , perspective, portraiture and landscape. Depending on the weather some drawings will happen plein air.

Limited to 9 participants
