Let loose your creativity this fall during Roberson’s 6-week drawing class!

Your instructor, Nancy Ryan, has over 20 years of experience in the arts. She’ll guide you step-by-step through the drawing process showing you how to use space and shadow to create scenes with depth and movement. You’ll learn the proper technique to exercise your drawing muscles and make your new portfolio of pieces flow!

We’ll be using the still life within Roberson’s beautifully laid-out nature exhibition to inspire and create scenes from life.

This drawing class contains more than 20 hours of instruction. Plus, use the backdrop of the Roberson Museum’s stunning exhibitions as your source material. Drawing materials to complete the course are included with registration.

*Each course has a limit of 10 openings to maintain social distancing. Students 16 years and older are welcome to register. All students must be registered to participate. No substitutes may be sent to class.

*All sales are final. No refunds will be given.
