Drawing | Keep on Drawing | Tannya Harricks

This will be a fun and intense weekly drawing class that will challenge the way you see and draw. This class is for anyone who wants to step up their own art practice, improve their drawing ability and reinvigorate their creativity. We will explore a range of unconventional approaches and techniques while discussing all of the elements that make up a powerful drawing.
Tannya participated in the two week Drawing Marathon intensive with Graham Nickson at the New York Studio School earlier this year and has so much to share with Art Est students from her experience there.
Drawing is common to all visual artforms and helps us understand our place in the world, so lets keep on drawing!

All levels of ability and experience.

“Creativity takes courage” - Henri Matisse
