Your first Art Lesson will cover different kinds of Graphite Pencils, how to use them, drawing techniques/methods, and VIP artist’s insider tricks for how to draw from life like the Masters of yesteryear!

Each skill will be explained and demonstrated step by step. ShawnaLee will model and explain while the recipient follows along at his or her own pace. Immediate positive feedback with Q&A will be offered before moving to the next skill.
