The Fine Art of Pencil Illustration [November 2020]

November 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Relax and draw in this online class every Saturday morning at 10AM!

Express yourself in this fun and relaxing drawing class! Whether you are a professional artist or looking to try your hand at illustration for the first time, this weekend session will guide you through the basics of pencil drawing. This course will cover the technical aspects of illustration in a fun, informative and creative environment.

In this class, we will cover basic techniques and advanced students can gain additional insight on how to improve their artwork. Students will have a completed drawing to share and many take-away skills to complement their own work.

Interested in illustration from an early age, Asia Scudder has trained extensively in how to capture natural form in pencil illustration. Her collegiate studies in environmental and wildlife studies merged her interests in an understanding of the science of form and function in nature’s complexities. Illustration is a practice in seeing, in patience and execution of technique. Scudder has brought this together in her innovative teaching style to mix storytelling with informative conversation on the object, while teaching the technical aspects of illustration.
