In this class you will draw animals—real and imaginary—as you learn how to see the connections that make your drawings come to life! How does light and shadow make your animal feel round and alive? How can you place your animal in a scene that helps tell a story? How do two or more animals in a drawing "talk" to each other? Choose one animal or many and have fun learning about the magic of drawing. This is the first class in a series of art classes I will offer throughout the school year called “Creative Connections." Each class will emphasize a particular compositional connection within a drawing, painting or sculpture while always allowing room for unique creative ideas. All of my classes are designed to be adaptable to multiple ages.
