Art Workshop: Drawing Cats and Dogs

June 8 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


Discover how to draw critters with real character and personality. Learn about the use of expressive linework to create natural rhythm and flow, explore how to draw with convincing proportions, and find out how to imbue your subject drawings with plenty of charm. You’ll be guided in the valuable art of self-critique to help you become your own best teacher. Plenty of one-to-one guidance will be offered for basic sketching through mindful refinement of your work, using your own photos for reference. Be inspired by fellow pet lovers as you develop solid skills based on ingenuity, wit, and self-trust.
