This workshop is designed for all levels of experience including first time drawers

In this three hour workshop, participants will practice drawing two pet portraits with graphite pencil.

Shading will be added to emphasize the pet’s particular fur, scales, skin, shell, etc.
In the second half of the workshop, participants will apply the techniques practiced while drawing a pet portrait from the image brought with them or chosen from the provided variety of images (e.g. dogs, cats, hamsters, horses, turtles, fish, snakes, etc.).
