In this series, you will learn the basics of drawing and work through several lessons to design and draw your very own still life artwork. All you need is a pen/pencil and paper.

Every Monday, we will release a video and exercise on a specific drawing technique that you can practice on your own. On the Friday evening of the same week, there will be a livestream via Zoom to ask questions and share your progress. Below is the lesson schedule.
