Join Artist/Educator Meagan Burns in the Continuous Line Drawing sessions two times per week to greatly improve your drawing abilities by doing drawing warm-ups, pattern making and short timed continuous line sketches.
The Continuous Line Drawing practice is akin to taking vitamins for drawing; these classes do not focus on accuracy but rather this class encourages participants to embrace their unique style of line making, regardless of the medium. Meagan has curated a continuous line warm-up exercise that will improve the quality and expressiveness of one's drawings.
Whether you're an experienced artist or a beginner, this continuous line practice can have a significant impact on your drawing ability. Meagan will offer proven tips and techniques for incorporating continuous line practice into your routine, and guide you towards discovering your own personal style.
