This workshop is designed especially for novices! We start with easy drawing exercises and build up step-by-step with demos, hand-outs, and hands on experience. Learn real art fundamentals in a fun, and non intimidating way. You'll leave with a better appreciation of art in general, and a black & white still-life painting of your very own, and be amazed at what you can do!

Cost: $127 — Materials $40, or bring your own, list provided.

"Being a first time art student, I gained valuable insight... it was the perfect start. I learned to let go of my mind and allow my true creativity to come out. Dayna held the space for that process very well!" — Steve B.

"The great joy was learning to see what was in front of us and give expression to it on the canvas. Dayna's gentle guidance made for a truly joyful experience." — Victoria M.

"A good value! It costs less than other classes and is much better instruction then I've gotten elsewhere." — Nancy H.
