Welcome to Drawing

The materials and methods of drawing are the most basic tools of the artist and the designer. Some drawings are simple and quick and become studies for larger projects. Others take far longer to complete and are, themselves, finished works of art. Various materials, such as pen, crayon, chalk, pencil and ink washes, can be mixed in combination with different kinds of paper to create beautiful works of art. Drawing has the wonderful ability to be portable. All you need is a sketch pad and a pencil to capture candid moments, actions or moods with a kind of immediacy and intimacy you don’t find with other mediums.

We believe that you can’t draw what you can’t see. Our goal is to improve your vision of the world around you.
