10 Steps to Drawing Anything

11am-1 pm Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Being in San Miguel is so inspiring, you can’t help but want to sketch everything from the designs in the tiles to the details in the door-knockers.

Drawing classes with Jessica will fast forward your ability level, if you can’t even draw a straight line, by teaching you the foundations of art. Change the way you make and look at art forever. Whether you’re here for a while or just a short visit to SMA, the class will give you a practical toolkit to employ in your drawings to expressively draw what you see.

Expect guaranteed improvement in drawing skills, with focus on right-brain stimulation. Small classes mean you get personal feedback. Hablo espanol.
