Looking to start your journey into freehand drawing? Our Beginner Freehand Drawing I course is the perfect place to begin. This course will teach you the basics of drawing from a reference photo, including breaking down the subject into simple shapes and getting the proportions accurate. 

Age

Workshops are open to anyone who wants to draw and learn freehand drawing art from age 10 through adults. If you are a beginner or new to graphite pencil art, start from the Introduction to Graphite Pencil workshop.

Art LeveL

All art styles, skill levels, and art goals are welcome. If you are new to graphite pencil, I highly recommend taking the Introduction to Graphite Pencil workshop before taking other workshops. Each workshop builds skillsets needed for the next workshop.

Flexibility

Pick your workshop from two available session times! All workshops are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. All classes are 2 hours long, and it is $45/class.

Need more time to finish your work? Join the 2-hour open studio class in the following week for more individualized instructions.

Location

All workshops and open studio classes are held at Tanigawa Studio in downtown McKinney TX.
